#2137: Adding authors to admin blog

 Using BP 1.2.1 and WPMU

 I've added a couple of users to the main blog as authors to make posts to
 the main site's blog. They can access the dashboard from site/wp-admin/
 and everything functions as expected there, but from their buddypress
 profiles they are not affiliated with the blog (it shows 0 blogs created)
 and when logged in to the site the blog is not listed from the top admin
 bar under 'My Blogs'.

 If I add the user as a site admin from /wp-admin/wpmu-options.php then the
 user has the blog listed in their profile and from My Blogs - but then of
 course it gives them full admin access to the installation.

 Is it possible to add a user as an author to the main blog so that it
 affiliates them with the blog from their BP profile, but without having to
 give them full admin status?
