"Edit Owned Articles" and group membership

When a user is in a client portal security role that grants "Edit Owned Articles", what is considered an owned article?  I know that articles directly owned by the user, and articles owned by the user's primary group seem to count, but can the user edit articles owned by any group that they are members of?

Hello Joe,

According to the help text of that permission, it does the following: Allows a user to edit an article if they are marked as the owner of the article.

From this description, it would not seem like group membership is taken into account, so I would not expect it to allow editing solely based on membership of a group who owns an article, no.
