ir.module.category is an object same as other objects in OpenERP like sal.order, purchase.order, etc. It defines category of application like Sale, Purchase, Warehouse, etc.

<record model="ir.module.category" id="module_lunch_category"> record creates a category for security group.

For example you have seen Sale, Account, Point of Sale groups inside res.users form view in Access Rights tab.

<record id="group_lunch_user" model="res.groups"> creates a group like User, Account Manager, etc.

<field name="implied_ids" eval="[(4, ref('group_lunch_user'))]"/> This means Users of this group automatically inherit those groups. It is same as inheritance.

Here, Manager group inherit security rights and roles of User group also.

You can refer point_of_sale, account or sale or purchase modules security code also.

thanks Arya.......thanks a lot :-)

How do you know this stuff? In the docs under Module Structure/XML Files mention of security.xml is curiously missing and the chapter on security says very little if anything useful at all.

Self learning and R&D. Yes, you are right there is nothing in documents about such things.
