We host a lot of projects and we needed a solution to archive projects without activity. The included patch implement this feature.

  • Request <HOST>/sys/mark_all_inactive_projects and
    status for all inactive projects (no activity since
    one month) are changed to STATUS_INACTIVE.
  • All users which has permissions to reactivate
    project receive a mail notification with a reactivate URL.
  • If user clicks link in mail project status changes
    to active.
  • Request <HOST>/sys/archive_inactive_projects and
    all inactive projects will be archived. (STATUS_ARCHIVED).
  • projects newer than a month are not affected
  • if project has activity since mail it will not be archived
    and will be set as STATUS_ACTIVE.
