Right. It's best never to delete a user in Review Board. Marking them as
inactive is fine, though.

I know what other people have done is written custom auth backends to talk
to a central database for users, so instead of creating/updating users in
Review Board based on redmine's data, you'd just have Review Board use
redmine for authentication in some way.

I'm not familiar enough with redmine, but if it could use something like
LDAP for authentication, that'd be even easier.
