Subject Re: [all] Removing websites of dormant components
Date Thu, 05 Dec 2013 08:27:36 GMT
I think we should keep the lights on, but no more. So sites should exist to
that level.

What is the minimum needed on the site for a dormant project?

Pointer to this list, explanation of what it is/was, pointer to old
releases and to the location of the source history.

I'm torn on javadoc; I don't think it's required, but it's also so useful
when you can find it online and not have to dig open a tar.gz.  See my
comment on another thread about centralizing javadoc - if we did that, then
dormant javadoc wouldn't have an incremental cost with each component. I'm
happy to volunteer to work on such a centralized wossname.
