Details

We'd like a way to create an archive of articles that are no longer maintained. The idea is that adding an article to this archive would:
1. Add a message to the article that explains to users that the article is no longer maintained and may have out of date information
2. The article would be removed from normal SUMO searches. It would still be accessible through an advanced search.
3. The article would be removed from localization dashboards so that it wouldn't show up as needing to be localized or count against localization %. 

The ability to archive an article should be for KB approvers only. At a minimum we'd need a checkbox in the description section of an article. Bonus points for a checkbox in the sumo admin so we can archive multiple articles at once.
Implementation detail: Probably easiest to implement by a new boolean on the Document model.

Easy enough to add a new admin action to archive multiple at once.

Broke the search stuff (bug 654327) and admin stuff (bug 654329) off so we can land the bulk of it while we figure out why the search tests don't work.

Has this feature been implemented for admin only?  What about KB approvers being able to archive or un-archive an article?  I don't see any "Archive" option when editing the description of an article.

I do see the "Obsolete" option.  Thanks, Kadir.
