Making Bugzilla Read-only
1. For each product, check the Closed checkbox so that the product does not appear in the list of products where bugs can be created. This effectively stops new bugs from being created, though perhaps using the right URL might still work.

2. Define a new group named something like "CanStillEdit" that can be used for bugs and add it to all products. Don't add anyone to the new group yet.

3. For each product, edit the group memberships at the end of the configuration page and set the "Can Edit" checkbox for just the CanStillEdit group. Leave all of the other groups unchanged. Now only members of the CanStillEdit group can edit bugs. It took a few passes through the documentation about this feature to see what they meant.
