All Gerrit repos set to read-only. Can't do the Diffusion repos :)

I've archived MediaWiki-extensions-Wikilabels and also took care of deactivating all linked Phabricator Diffusion mirrors. That said, the repos: rEWDE, R1898, rEVIN and rEBLM are not empty and I feel we should remove everything from them (except the .git.* files) and add an OBSOLETE file as we're doing with the rest of them. Those repos are marked as "read-only" on Gerrit so I can't do it.

MarcoAurelio added a project: Gerrit.
MarcoAurelio moved this task from Bugs & stuff to Repo Admin on the Gerrit board.

@MarcoAurelio: @Florian: Thanks for your hard work to both of you! I have +2 rights to NumberOfComments, so I'll un-mark it and empty it, then mark that one as read-only again.

@MarcoAurelio I changed the repos back to "Active", so you can add changes to them now (I'm not doing it, as I don't have time now, and I don't see a reason doing it :]). Please give me a hint, when you're finished, so I can mark them as read-only again :)

@Florian Danke! I saw divided opinions on that practice. In one hand some see OBSOLETE files a waste of time, while others think they're needed for user awareness. In case of doubt I always take the bureaucratic approach :) Regards.

MarcoAurelio added a comment.EditedSep 17 2017, 8:12 PM and all others are marked as read-only, except rEBLM. Meh. Just mark rEBLM as read-only again @Florian ; I don't feel like cloning 4 repos just to add a file on them.

Thank you. I've forced an update on R1898 to reflect the current repository status, and deactivated it again here.

Florian updated the task description. (Show Details)Sep 17 2017, 8:18 PM

@Florian SInce I modified the message above, I'm not sure if you were notified. Please mark as read-only all of them again. I don't feel like cloning a bunch of repos just to delete them afterwards and add a single file.

Florian added a comment.EditedSep 17 2017, 8:22 PM is not listed above (in the Gerrit project list) :P Re-activated it. I also re-activated all others in gerrit.

:D I'll change them to read-only again.

MarcoAurelio assigned this task to Florian.
MarcoAurelio triaged this task as Normal priority.

Nothing left to do here IMHO.
