What capabilities does a project/team area administrator have?

Hi everyone,
I was searching for some documentation about what a project/team area administrator can do in RTC.
Moreover what are the capabilities that are exclusive to the administrators and what capabilities can also be provided via certain permissions.

E.g. there are the two questions: 
1. Who can add/remove users (as members) from a team/project area?
2. Who can change the role assignment of a user?

Use this document as a reference.
https://jazz.net/help-dev/clm/topic/com.ibm.jazz.repository.web.admin.doc/topics/c_understand_user_access_control.html
Administrators have permission to save all changes to the project area or team area that they administer. Administrators typically modify aspects of the project area or team area process, such as membership and role assignments.
Comparing to "normal users"
Depending on the access control settings in a project area, membership in that project area or one of its team areas can determine whether a user has access to project area and team artifacts.
So the answer to your questions is Administrators.

Hi Donald,

I need to come back to this question to get a clear statement. My understanding now is that a project/team area administrator implicitly gets the permissions that someone would find in the process configuration editor under: Project Configuration / Process / Project areas (Server)  and Team Configuration / Process / Team areas (Server)

In the end the question is whether the capabilities of an "Administrator" could be fully covered by a dedicated process role (not saying that I want to do it)?
