We reference issue numbers in our src control systems and in other areas. When an issue gets closed and project layouts get moved around, closed issues end up in dead projects that are archived.

The problem is that when you access the link of a dead issue, it's not found with a permission error.

Make it so that the issue can be accessed read only, even if the project is archived.

This is pretty annoying for us as well, there is a lot of knowledge in the old tickets that is not available simply because redmine is blocking access to the archived projects tickets. It seems silly that the search is incapable of finding archived tickets.

With "Close projects" feature added by #3640 (Redmine 2.1.0), you can make projects read only.
