Group admins added to site as authors, not admins
I created a group and invited some folks with the admin role. When they accepted their invitation, they were successfully added to the group as admins, but were added to the site as authors. I manually changed their role in the site to admin. Is this the expected behavior?

No, it's not intended behavior. The group-site role mapping is defined here https://commons.gc.cuny.edu/groups/aanapisi-bridge-initiative-faculty-seminar-series-winter-2022/admin/group-blog/ and it suggests that they should have been added as Administrators.
The process of inviting a user to a group with a given role, then having them accept the invitation and be granted the specified role, has a lot of moving parts, and it's possible that the group-site mapping is taking place after the user becomes a member of the group but before they are promoted to group admin. I'll try to take a look before the next release to see whether I can isolate it.

Hi Gina - Thanks for your patience and for the ping. I was able to reproduce the issue and identify the underlying cause. It'll be fixed in the upcoming 2.0.0 release, scheduled for later this week.
