Description

The same as archiving a project, except it isn't hidden.

This allows you to effectively mark a project as complete or finished, while still allowing users to download the files, browse the wiki and repository, etc.
Basically, the project becomes read-only.

I think this is needed because a project doesn't simply become obsolete and useless just because development has "officially" stopped, as archiving implies by hiding it. People may still want to use the software or even fork the project and continue where you left off.

Thanks Jean-Philippe. Although I personally don't need this feature much any more, I know that it is very handy for other roles/processes I have used in the past.

Thanks, that's right! And it worked after we updated the show.html.erb of the projects accordion plugin we used. That plugin wasn't properly updated to show the close link.

Could you share how to update the show.html.erb? I just installed projects accordion and have lost the close button link.

Thanks!

Never mind - I just had to copy the close project section from apps\redmine\htdocs\app\views\projects\show.html.erb into the corresponding location in apps\redmine\htdocs\plugins\redmine_projects_accordion\app\views\projects\show.html.erb. But many thanks for the pointer!
