i absolutely agree that some old untouched projects still have a lot of
value.  something like abzilla or abimoz won't be purged.  we're
looking at getting rid of projects that were started and then never
touched.  something like xurblezilla.mozdev.org.

these projects may have a mailing list that is getting spam sent to it
everyday.  the may also have a bugzilla product set up.  for instance,
i noticed that the abandoned dictinstall project had two bugs assigned
to it that applied to other dictionary projects.

if anyone wants to help out with the effort or make sure we aren't
purging valuable projects, we're going to track everything at
