[Spacewalk-list] How to retire a channel?

I've been trying to research this and it appear to me that the "Retired Channel" tab is used only when Red Hat retires a channel in RHN, and the channel would then get retired in Satellite/Spacewalk.  Is that correct?

What do others do when you are no longer using a channel?  Do you delete it, or just leave it?    I've considered making a clone of it, so I can rename it, with something like "Archive" or similar in the name so everyone knows that this channel is for references only.

If I archive the channel, I don't need the corresponding repository, correct?  Can I remove that so no one attempts to initiate a sync.

Any thoughts on the subject?

I have an older SLES 11 SP3 channel that I would like to retire.  SP3 went EOL over a year ago, and I don't have any clients registered to use it, but I would like to keep the channel and packages if possible.  I see a "Retired Channels"  tab, but I don't see a way to change the status of the channel.
