Deprecate a project in JIRA

We have created many projects in JIRA for various reasons, yet some of these projects are either now completed or no longer needed to be tracked.  I know I can delete an entire project, but I really don't want to do that (for historical purposes).  I want to deprecate it in some manner so that it stops showing up in Project drop downs and filter options, etc....  Is there anyway of doing this?

Hide it.

Create a permission scheme that does not have anyone set for "browse".  Then no-one will see it, it won't turn up in searches and it won't be offered in drop-downs.

If you do still need to see it, then you could use a permission scheme that only allows "browse".  At least that way, it will not be offered in the "create" menu.

Such a simple solution. Thank you!
