My assumption was that a 'draft' version of a paper is just visible to myself, but if I add a group in the paper settings everyone receives an email notification.

Here's the steps I just completed:
1. Create New Paper
2. Added text
3. In the paper settings, added CAC team
4. Clicked 'Save Draft'
5. Received an auto-email notifying me that a paper had been added to the CAC Team group

I do not see the paper in the Social Paper directory. I do see it in the CAC Team group's RSS feed.

Is it by design that a draft can still be shared with groups?
I think we need to do a bit of work on clarifying draft vs published visibility and groups, but in the meantime I would vote that we unlink drafts and group notifications.

This is not by design. I agree that draft papers should not be reflected in activity streams, and the fact that they are is likely an oversight. Let's try to fix it for the next release.
