Darklands progress

I wanted to move the darklands on the weekend to use towny. However I found out that thee is an issue with the permissions system to make it work properly. Sicne the permissions system has not been updated recently, I would have to migrate the whole permssions over to a new system. I am not sure what it currently the best way. I am trying to get in touch with the author of the system and see if there is a patch available.
