Read-Only/ Archived repositories

In my project we have to maintain previous suppliers' extensions to an open source software.
For legal reasons, instead of modifying the original repository it is better to override the existing code in our own repository.
It would be great if you could Archive or set the repository into Read-Only mode, so that the new developers would not make modifications into it by mistake.

    Deveo now has repository specific access controls available. This need can be done by enabling repository level access to that specific repository and setting everyone as guest to that specific repository.

        We are going to introduce repository specific or "advanced" permissions later this fall. This will allow setting certain repositories as read only for everyone, except project administrators. It supports the read-only/archive requirement. In addition, you might add a README.md file with a heading that says that the repository is not in active development.
