i'd like to trim the repositories list on to make it more
clear what's being developed/maintained and what's in a 'dormant'
state... and move the latter to subdir.

i'd propose that anything that didnt see actual relevant commits in the
past 4+ years be candidate for archival, so here's a list (the relevant
last known developer is in bcc:, if i have the right e-mail address..):

xfce/thunar-desktop-plugin: didnt see commits since the initial import 5 years ago - jannis ?
xfce/xfce4-docs: we finally settled on maintaining the docs in

apps/airconfig (and libs/ghal): kelnos says on that it's unmaintained/broken
apps/eatmonkey: mike is okay with archiving it
apps/transd: only i18n commits since 4 years, no release - kelnos ?
apps/xfce4-profile-manager: stephan ? no commits since initial import 4+ years ago
apps/squeeze: only i18n since 2007 ? stephan, peter ? there's a branch with commits from 2 years ago..
apps/xfce4-volstatus-icon: only i18n commits since 2009 - kelnos ?
apps/xftasklets: no commits since 2009 ? david ?
apps/xfvnc: no release, only i18n since 2008 - kelnos ?

panel-plugins/xfce4-equake-plugin: seems maintained on github ?
panel-plugins/xfce4-gvfs-mount: mike is okay with archiving it, and conflicts with apps/gigolo ?
panel-plugins/xfce4-cellmodem-plugin: only i18n since 2009, alvaro ?
panel-plugins/xfce4-i8k-plugin, panel-plugins/xfce4-megahertz-plugin, panel-plugins/xfce4-lua-graph-plugin: last commit 10 years ago, empty in master branch
panel-plugins/xfce4-iicapn-plugin: one commit in 2010 ?
panel-plugins/xfce4-playercontrol-plugin: 3 commits in 2011 ?
panel-plugins/xfce4-smartpm-plugin: only i18n since 2009, last release in 2008, is dead ?
panel-plugins/xfce4-trigger-launcher: last commit in 2007 around xfce 4.2
panel-plugins/xfce4-websearch-plugin: last commit in 2005
panel-plugins/xfce4-xfapplet-plugin: last commit in 2006, gnome-panel 2 applets ? there's hardware-monitor plugin ?
panel-plugins/xfmedia-remote-plugin: well, xfmedia is already archived... and only i18n since 9 years
panel-plugins/xfswitch-plugin: only i18n since 2009, jerome ?

special-interest-group/design ? jannis, ochosi, nick ?
foundation/* ? jannis ?

Note that i dont intend to remove anything at all, it's just to make it
clearer what is developed and will see releases in the foreseeable
future so that translators don't work for nothing, etc.. archived repo
are still here and can be cloned/browsed.

For developers that have a project in a 'not much development going on
but still on my radar' state, please consider doing a release if you have
3/4 pending years of translations (yeah, i'm looking at apps/xfmpc for

I'd like to do the repo trimming in a week/10 days, so you have time to

Nick, do we need to do something on the transifex side if a git repo
holding registered translations is archived/moved ?
