[Deploying Sakai] Profs squirreling away old course sites

We don't inactivate or delete any course sites. Instead we point students toward the tab management feature in MWS -> Preferences so that they can determine for themselves which sites/courses should be visible. We typically post instructions for this in the Message of the Day at the beginning of the semester.

The courses are also made unjoinable once rosters are finalized at the beginning of term.  We haven’t deleted any course sites and we went into full production in the Fall of 2005.
