I read this post on admins not being able to alter projects, and I understand the philosophy of Phab users - that admins are not all-powerful.
However, I’m in a situation where the current permissions model hinders my job as a “janitor”-style admin: a project owner left the company, and I cannot deactivate the project. So the project is stranded in an incorrect open-state and no one, short of editing the database (?), can fix it.
When objects such as projects see all of their owner accounts deactivated, the mantle of responsibility for cleanup should fall to admins, but it currently cannot. Is there a workaround for this?
