This does not appear to be the case. Once the successful branch is
rebased onto master, all the relevant history is 'merged', so
there is no particular use for the archive branch which is just an
end-of-activity marker. The true history is identifiable from the

the rebase transaction. If a real marker for the end-of-activity
is required then a tag is of course possible.
It seems that the only 'bug' branches worth keeping are those that
have not been exploited, so I propose that
bug/xxxxxx is a work in progress that will probably be exploited
archive/xxxxxx is a work abandoned, that might be revivable later
There should be very few archive/xxxxxx, and only a few
