Best Practices for Branches

Could anyone please help out on best practices for what to do with old branches which has been merged. Do we delete them OR archive them?

@ripalpatel52, I doubt keeping old branches indefinitely is worthwhile, and I’m certain the best practices for branch maintainance is dependent with respect to the purpose of the overall project/development among other things. You should mention something about overall purpose of the project/development relating to the repository you have mentioned.
