Commit changes is submitting mistakes as well


As a farm admin i've all rights, creating an new project resulted into me being:
  • project manager in TFS
  • full control in Sharepoint
  • content manager in report builder
    I used the TFSAdmin tool and clicked off the checkbox 'content manager' under report server and then i clicked it on again.
    In fact i didn't change anything this time, but the commit changes is tracking every action (even if it's a wrong one)
    In my opinion the "commit changes" should only commit the differences between the original state and the final state
    Or even better (but that is another Issue?) don't allow tfsadmin to remove your own permissions..

Thanks for filing the work item. Unfortunately, the code has been shut down for version 1.4 so we will not be able to improve the change detection logic for version 1.4. The good news is that we are working on a version 1.5 release in which the change detection logic has been re-written completely and it is most sophisticate.

I have also put on the list of feature your proposal of not being able to remove your own permissions.

Hmm.. i took the latest development source and opened it in VS2008, builded it and...
I'm able to delete myself in a test project from SharePoint and Report Server.

A "revert back to parent permissions" isn't possible either.

It shouldn't be impossible to delete myself from any project.
