What is the difference between can_edit_verification and can_verify_reports?

There are two permissions that are called something different but whose descriptions are almost identical.

What is the difference between these?

Property Description
can_edit_verification Allows updating of report verification status
can_verify_reports Allows update of report verification status

The admin app has a better description of the two:

  • can_edit_verification: Allowed to update report verification statuses.
  • can_verify_reports: Allowed to set report verification statuses if no status is currently set.

In other can_edit_verification means the user can set and update verification status, whereas users with can_verify_reports can only set the verification status if it’s not currently set.
