Mark project categories as "inactive"
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.

This 10-day old plugin is an attempt to meet this need: and has two users giving it 5-stars already

Hello, based on the outdated plugin I tried to integrate the changes into current git master, tested the UI with a running server and created some unit tests.
The plugin was running fine with redmine 3.x, but for redmine 4 the overwritten files had changed so the UX got broken and also the routes needed to be fixed (since this seems new with redmine 4.x).
I'm not 100% sure if the version in migration is right (6.1?) and if the config/routes.rb is properly since I'm not really into ruby/rails dev (so sorry if this is not proper coded). I mainly ported the plugin into the source. For me the code worked incl. routing and it provided same functionally than the old redmine plugin.
Tests were green beside one search test (Must be superuser to create this extension).
If the code/patch needs adaption, please let me know.
Shall I create a new issue, or will this issue be updated to tracker "patch"?
