      Description

      Steps to reproduce:
      1. Navigate into a site of which you are a member
      2. Select the Site Members menu option
      3. View my own site permissions in the list.
      Result: Permissions shown as Collaborator (see attachment)
      4. Navigate to the Site Dashboard
      5. View the list of site managers shown in the Site Profile dashlet
      Result: I am included in the Site Managers list (see attachement)
      6. Attempt to upgrade someone to site manager
      Result: Upgrade successful despite this being apparently above my own role

      Impact:
      It's not clear from the two separate views on the site which level my role is, although it seems to be that I am a site manager if I have permissions to create other site managers.

      Note - Raising as a Category 2: Working feature but unintuitive user interface.
