"We would like to use a default layout for the home page of every archive space. The template should be automatically used when a new archive space is created. In our view it could work similar to the Atlassian default space (system) template used when a new site space is created."
"We want a replica of "normal" parent pages, but we do not necessarily want a replica of the space's homepage, or rather, we don't want to use this replica as the homepage of the archived space. We would prefer to have a homepage for archived spaces that always has the same layout: a big search field for the archived space and a set of tips on how to deal with archived spaces, e.g. how to launch a full text search."
