Disable role editing for ProjectLead on project


is it possible to disable editing of roles(ad/remove users/gorups) for project by ProjectLead? Nice will be to set it per project.

Yes (but no)

Your project lead can probably add/remove users because the project permission scheme says "project lead has administrate project rights". So, yes, because if you remove that permission, the project lead loses their admin rights.

(but no, because "administrate project" is not just user maintenance - it gives you the right to edit versions, components and some elements in Greenhopper too, and the rights come as a bundle - it's all of them or none)
