That's not how "others" works: it specifies users that don't have the
right to turn their camera on until they have been given the "present"
permission by the operator (using the command "/present").

There are two ways of setting up a group in Galène:

  - give all users the "present" persmission -- the administrator can then
    silence disruptive users using the "/unpresent" command;
  - give users just the "other" persmission -- the administrator can then
    use the "/present" command to voice a user.

A better name would be welcome, but "anonymous" is a bad choice -- an
anonymous user is just one that has an empty username.  This is controlled
by the "allow-anonymous" field.
