Option to prevent removing all members with a certain role
Not sure if this is a huge problem (or why many people would do this), but we had a user that started a project then needed to demote themselves to a member due to restrictions of the class. As such, they then had a project that no one could access or make changes too.
To fix this, it would be nice to have an option that would warn users when they are demoting someone from certain roles. Could be as simple as a text box that says, "By demoting this user, there will be no one with the ability to change the project" ....or there could be a fail safe that would not allow the user to this at all, but rather have to transfer those responsibilities to another "Project Manager" or equivalent before demoting themselves.

Have a look if #4402 / r3249 solves what you are describing here. The problem with "making sure at least 1 user with role X" exists is that 1. not everyone wants that, and 2. the roles are freely configurable, so Manager might mean two different permission sets on two different redmine installations.

Maybe it could be an option in the Admin settings, where you could choose that "At least 1 user with this role" was on each project. That way it could be totally up to the administrators how the option was utilized. For community projects, I think this is an important issue.
Looks like for the update you mention, it is a warning for deleting a member. Is this correct?

- Subject changed from Warn user when 'demoting' their role/permissions on a project, particularly when there are no other project managers left to Option to prevent removing all members with a certain role
- Category set to Projects
Subject changed since the warning when someone tries to remove himself from a project is already implemented.
