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You can archive a repository to make it read-only for all users and indicate that it's no longer actively maintained. You can also unarchive repositories that have been archived.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: If you have a legacy per-repository billing plan, you will still be charged for your archived repository. If you don't want to be charged for an archived repository, you must upgrade to a new product. For more information, see "GitHub's products."

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

Recomendamos encerrar todos os problemas e todas as solicitações pull, assim como atualizar o arquivo README e a descrição, antes de arquivar um repositório.

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."
