When collection details are updated, any additional managers (not including the default collection manager) are removed from the assigned roles.

No actual details for the collection need to change; the behavior occurs upon clicking the "Update Collection" button. Additionally, the behavior only applies to additional managers for the collection; editors and depositors are unaffected.


Tested on PawPaw and Mallorn

Expected Behavior

Updating collection details leaves assigned staff roles unaffected
