    Description

      It would be nice if a role could be defined where role renaming is prohibited in the course settings. I can do the same for other course settings like the ability to change the course ID, name, guest access, and so on, but not disable the ability to rename roles.

      I think this request is related to http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-22928.
