Description

Hi, was just pulling stats regarding our git repositories and found that quite a few have been inactive for over six months...

  • censorship-timeline
  • check
  • compass
  • curriculum
  • erebus
  • flashproxy
  • gettor
  • githax
  • guardfraction
  • metrics-tasks
  • ooni_reader
  • ooni_spec
  • ooni_web
  • oonib
  • pluggable-transports_bundle
  • pluggable-transports_fog
  • pluggable-transports_obfs4
  • pluggable-transports_obfsproxy
  • pluggable-transports_obfsproxy-legacy
  • pluggable-transports_pyptlib
  • pups
  • pytorctl
  • stegotorus
  • support-tools
  • thandy
  • tor-blog
  • tor-brochure
  • tor-design-2012
  • tor-fw-helper
  • tor-glossary
  • tor-manual
  • tor-ramdisk
  • torbrowser
  • tordnsel
  • torflow
  • torperf
  • weather
  • webstats

No doubt this clutter makes things harder to navigate for newcomers. Any reason not to move these to the attic?

I think one of the useful next steps would be to divide this list into "real things that we are running, and just happen to not have needed or gotten a commit in the past six months" vs "not that".

For example, check is still a real website that real people use, and Arlo is maintaining it, but it hasn't broken lately.

Things I recognize as still being used (but their codebases inactive) are...

Don't touch my repos, unless you have deployable alternatives.

pluggable-transports/obfs4
tor-fw-helper

Hi Yawning. Certainly can do though I suspect the 'attic' classification wouldn't actually change anything. It's just how things are listed on https://gitweb.torproject.org/

Last I checked, both of my repos fall into "real things that we are running, and just happen to not have needed or gotten a commit in the past six months".

Plus, everyone pulls obfs4proxy from where it is now.

Please get the repo owners to request moving stuff to the attic, I'm not moving them without their consent. Individual tickets can be filed for those

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
