I am confused about the permissions. I need clarification about the following scenario:
User A who has 2 projects linked with GitHub.
User A creates new Collab role.
User A adds User B as a collaborator.
Can User A set project settings that User B cannot modify?

    User A can assign a role which does not have Create, delete projects, update project settings and Update project settings to the GitHub Team user B is member of. Please check some details here.

    However this will apply to all setting for all projects under Account, not to specific project

    If you need control on project level, you can modify Update settings permission at project level. However you cannot do more granular control. e.g. allow to modify only some settings.

    Hope this makes sense.
