#714 Remove hosted projects unmodified atleast for six months.

Created 8 years ago by susmit

This is in continuation with the talk with mmcgrath. [[BR]] Fedora have a policy to remove all hosted project which are not touched at least last for 6 months.[[BR]] So need to find all projects in fedorahosted which are not modified for last 6 months and expire them.[[BR]] We may like to have a look at both trac and source repo.

Attching the script for finding such projects.(Though unlikely, this may have bug.)

Hey susmit, any updates on this?

Find old hosted projects. Patched. find_old_hosted_projects.sh

The scripts has been tested, patched and deployed. Please make necessary announcements before we start removing the projects. There may be a public unrest though. :)

These are the hosted projects not altered for last 6 months. [[BR]] So they are the candidates for removal.[[BR]] Any comment?[[BR]]

any updates on this?

From the discussion which has happened, it looks like we can go ahead and remove the 6 month old projects if they are not touched within that period?

nah, no decision yet.

I'm going to go ahead and close this for now. I need to re-think it made the developers unhappy. It's good that we can scan for them, I'm not totally sure about what to do with stale projects though. I'm thinking about sending "annoyance spam" about it to stale projects that can safely be ignored or they can respond with the request to remove it.
