How do I create a role with read only access to a component?

When assigning source control permissions to a process role, all of the options have to do with saving or delivering changes.  If I unselect all of these permissions, then users with the role get an error message when accessing the 'Integration_stream' claiming that they don't have read access to the 'Integration_stream'.  How do I give read, but not write, permissions to a role?

Users with this role should be able to download a component to their repository workspace sandbox area, and accept incoming changes, but not deliver any changes of their own.

The article mentioned above would answer all the specific questions one may have in this area.

The short answer to your question however would be:
Component 'visibility' is the setting to govern read-access (ex: Open the component in an editor in the RTC Eclipse client and you will see the 'Visibility' setting). Process roles/rules/advisors will be able to govern the write-access (i.e. who can deliver to a stream).
