Archiving repositories

You can archive a repository to make it read-only for all users and indicate that it's no longer actively maintained. You can also unarchive repositories that have been archived.

About repository archival

Note: Customers who use GitHub Advanced Security can enable secret scanning on archived repositories. For more information, see "About secret scanning."

我们建议您在存档仓库之前,关闭所有议题和拉取请求并更新自述文件和说明。

Once a repository is archived, you cannot add or remove collaborators or teams. Contributors with access to the repository can only fork or star your project.

When a repository is archived, its issues, pull requests, code, labels, milestones, projects, wiki, releases, commits, tags, branches, reactions, code scanning alerts, comments and permissions become read-only. To make changes in an archived repository, you must unarchive the repository first.

You can search for archived repositories. For more information, see "Searching for repositories." You can also search for issues and pull requests within archived repositories. For more information, see "Searching issues and pull requests."
