Archiving a project

  We currently have our repository set up with all of our projects as high
level directories, in this sort of idea:

               ---  project 1 --- code  
  system --  project 2
               --- project 3  ...etc

  We are now not going to use some of them (say project 1 or 2), they are
for customer specific projects which are now cancelled, and the code is
duplicated in other projects so we won't lose development.

  I am wondering what is the best way to lock the repositories and keep
anyone from checking code into them.  I was thinking of using watches, or
perhaps setting up scripts to watch for specific directories and not display
them if anyone tries a checkout or a CVS log.  Is there a good scenario to
use in this case?  I've been looking in the archives, the Docs, and even in
Karl Fogel's book and really don't see where someone has wanted to lock
people out of a project, and unlock it later on if the project suddenly
comes back.  We do use scripts to do checkouts from CVS and set up the code
in development and build areas, one idea I toyed with was changing directory
names at the project level to have a keyword and modify the scripts to
ignore any projects with that keyword.  But if I change directory names I
don't want to screw up CVS.

  Is there a good way to handle this?
