OK, so the summary of the 111attendees discussion is that we don’t want unauthenticated write access to meeting notes.  Less well-discussed is that the authorization rule is that anyone with a datatracker account has write access, but I think that implementing anything more granular (e.g., attendee status for the meeting that generated the minutes) would be actual work.

The authorization rule seems to correspond to CodiMD’s “editable”, which is therefore the setting we should choose for meeting notes.  Whether we can do that automatically from the place where the meetings are assigned codimd names or have to do this manually is then a procedural thing to be discussed on tools-discuss.
