Dear fellow OKFN-ers! I have been receiving security-related warnings from GitHub about various legacy projects, and this morning decided as part of my professional duty to set four of them to Archived mode I have checked that in each case there was no activity in several years and that the websites were offline. They are:
They are each terrific projects, and the message I would like to send out with this is “badly in need of maintenance! be careful with this code - contact us first if you want to use it!” Please let me know of course if you disagree with any of this.
There are dozens of other projects in similar condition across my various organizations. Do any of you have a good clean up strategy, perhaps including an appropriate virtual graveyard for initiatives we want to remember, but still leave firmly in the past?
Wishing you all a peaceful & safe winter holiday!
