what about "pause" ? I'm not spotting negative overtones in any of the 
dictionaries I've consulted. A pause button icon could flag a project 
that is currently inactive.

just a thought,


p.s. did any doctors of middle english weigh in?

oversight, but I feel that if we don't close the mailing lists, they will not be properly
moderated (moderators still have to wade through spam looking for any faint signal), and people
would wonder why they send messages that get lost.  And we don't want to miss commit messages.
 It is best to structureally disable the resources than to trust in lack of use.
