OK, this might be a dumb question, but I did a few searches and I don't see it answered or addressed...

Is it possible to remove a reseller's ability to create/edit feature sets in WHM?

I want to be able to confine a reseller to only feature sets that I specify, so that they cannot give their customers the ability to access certain cPanel icons such as SSH Window, Crontab, SpamAssassin Spam Box, etc...

Currently, as far as I can tell, if you allow resellers to Add packages they can also Add/Modify their own features sets, and if you allow resellers to Edit their packages then they can also change the Features set for each package to whatever new ones created, and ALSO change it to Feature sets that were created by root!

If you are like me and you want to limit the icons/features that resellers can give their customers access to in cPanel, this can become an issue. Yes, I realize that I can just go in and check from time to time and make sure they aren't breaking any "rules", but it only takes a minute for a reseller's customer to jump into cPanel and say "oh neat, I wonder what this crontab button does... click click click" to create some issues for your server.

So unless I'm missing something (which I very well could be) it seems that if you want to allow your resellers to Add/Edit their own hosting packages, you can't avoid their ability to give themselves and their customers access to every single cPanel icon/feature that exists.

Please, someone correct me if I'm wrong and tell me how I can shield this potential issue, thanks!
