What has been confusing to you?  What information do you think is
missing?  (The MySQL team only can make things better, if they get to
know where the weak points are ...)

In contrast to earlier versions of MySQL, where you had to change the
privilege tables directly, starting with version 3.22.11 there is the
GRANT command, that does all changes to these tables automatically!

(There still is at least one case where manual changes are necessary,
 if you want wildcards in the db fields of mysql.db)

So to solution for the task given above is:

    ON foo.*
    TO joe@stripped;
    ON foo.bar1
    TO jr@stripped;
    ON foo.bar2
    TO jr@stripped;
