Once a GitHub project has been set up and usage begins (especially kanban-style projects), it’s extremely rare to need to add columns, rearrange them, or update the automation. There should be an option to lock the columns of the project.
Locking the columns would:
- Remove the Add Column button/column
- Prevent columns from being reordered
- Hide the links/buttons for managing automation of a column
I recommend putting this option to lock the columns on the project options page and/or in the hamburger menu for the project.
