Making the Sonatype Plexus GitHub Repositories Read Only

Plamen Totev-2
Hi,

There a couple of Plexus related repositories hosted at the Sonatype
GitHub account (https://github.com/sonatype/plexus-compiler for
example). Those repositories are not maintained and out of date. But
they appear on the top of the google results and that causes some
confusion. There are links to the new repositories but I think it
would be even better if those repositories are archived (made read
only). What do you think? The operation is reversible - they can be
made writable again if there is a need to do so.

Also if nobody objects  I would like to contact GitHub support to
check if we can make the codehaus-plexus repositories regular ones
(they appear as forks now). That would help with them being more
easily identified as the canonical repositories.

Regards,
Plamen Totev

Sounds good to me. Can we remove the "forked from sonatype/..." too?
