how to make repository read only?

sam detweiler (12.5k6192201) | asked Jan 29 '14, 4:11 p.m.
 as part of our project migration this week, I need to keep people from changing anything, but still give them read access..

I 'think' the right approach is to create a new Role like everyone, and turn off all save operations. 

then reassign everyone to that role only. 

any better way?

this will only work by project...  anything for the whole repository

I think what we did when we did this is just removed all permissions from "Everybody" (in addition to basically all other roles as well)  That way, nobody had permissions to modify anything.  I think we have one role that can do things for administrators, but that's it.
