[Project_owners] Abandoned project -not

The automatic move of project to the abandoned list based on CVS commits has caused a lot of consternation; this isn't the first (nor the last) time this discussion has come up.

I propose abandoning the abandoned project list altogether. Instead:

1. Change the link name from "Active Projects" to "MozDev Projects" (so as to avoid confusion with "Extenal Projects"
2. Rename http://www.mozdev.org/projects/active.html to http://www.mozdev.org/projects/mozdev.html or similar (i.e., get rid of all references to the words active/inactive/abandoned both in text and in links)
2. There's already a "Last Update" field on the projects page (http://www.mozdev.org/projects/active.html). If this isn't already populated from the last CVS commit, then change it so that is the date used in that field.

If you just make a change to one of the files in your www directory
then your project should get moved back to the active projects list. 
The lists are cached, so you'll need to wait 24 hours to see the
change.  If this doesn't happen, please let me know.

Automatically determining what constitutes an active vs. inactive
project is difficult, so we would welcome input from the group.  We are
also looking into creating a new category of unstarted projects that
will help seperate older projects with real content from older projects
that were never touched after they were created.
