SharePoint 2010 put back the "Set Up Groups for this Site" link

The "Set Up Groups for this Site" page has been, for some unknown reason, hidden in SharePoint 2010.

The page is still there and it can be accessed here:/_layouts/permsetup.aspx.

To make this generally available I created a custom action to add this to the "People and Groups: All Groups" (/_layouts/groups.aspx) page, in the Settings dropdown menu:

xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
< Elements xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/" >
  < CustomAction Id="64f25e2b-f9fb-4e37-b848-5949603b03ab"
                Title="Set Up Groups for this Site"
                Description="Use this page to specify who can access your site. You can create new SharePoint groups or re-use existing SharePoint groups."
                Location="Microsoft.SharePoint.GroupsPage"
                GroupId="SettingsMenu"
                Sequence="1000"
                >
    < UrlAction Url="~site/_layouts/permsetup.aspx">< /UrlAction>
  < /CustomAction >
< /Elements >  
This can a Site or Web level feature, depending on where it has to be applied.
