David, please don't delete my 3 projects: jsconsole, xulconsole and 

They work quite well with Mozilla last release and even if I don't 
update them, their functionalities are up-to-date for Mozilla 
developers: eating my own dog food, I use them almost every day so 
others could do the same.

I think, as reported here, that many projects are no more in a 
development phase but are nevertheless very helpful to many users.
Wouldn't it be fair to offer them a column (or a similar place) to 
re-activate interest in them, something like a "Don't forget me".
