Archive a CCG work item

An example is the DID-method-registry

First, prepare to archive. There are 2 different paths depending on whether the work item is being transferred somewhere (1a) or being retired (1b)

(1a) If transferring a work item:

  1. Redirect github page as described here
  2. Move/close issues. If multiple, can use bulk export:
  3. Export with bulk issue mover: https://github.com/gavinr/github-csv-tools
    • Upload as .xlsx to new repo
  4. If there are open pull requests (PRs), add a comment that you are closing it and direct to the new repo.
  5. Update README.md, first line should say “This repo has moved to LINK”.
  6. Update the work items list. Move from “in progress” to “completed” section
  7. Update website in repo settings to point to the new website

(1b) else, if you’re retiring a work item (it’s not transferred anywhere)

  1. Update README.md, first line should say “This repo has been archived”.
  2. Update the work items list. Move from “in progress” to “archived” section

(2) Archive the repo

Lastly, mark the repo as archived (settings > danger zone > archive this repository)
