>From this discussion a couple of things have become clear

- The cvs activity measurement needs to be rethought to get a better
determination of what an active project is.  cdn said that he was going
to look into this.

- We should look into creating a new category of older projects that
still have value even if they aren't being maintained -- projects such
as scripteditor or abimoz.  Maybe we could call this the Archived
projects category to distinguish it from the abandoned projects list. 
If anyone wants to help pick these out, please let me know.

I also want to reassure existing project owners that we are only
talking about purging abandoned projects that were never started.  So
far, we've identified a handful of older projects that we believe have
no archive value.  Please take a look at the list on the following bug
and make any additional comments there.
