Description

It would be nice to have the possibility to mark categories in a project as "inactive".

Deleting is not an option, as the old and closed tickets won't show the category anymore.
Leaving the category as is isn't an option either, as the customers can still add new tickets to this, maybe deprecated, category.

Therefore one should be able to mark a category in a project as "archived" or "inactive" to keep the category name but prevent users adding new tickets to this category.

Yes, I'm the plugin author ;-) However, I would rather like to see this implemented in redmine core than having this as a plugin...
