Projects end up on the Abandoned list after 180 days of inactivity in
CVS and on the Inactive projects list after 60 days of inactivity.

The current system isn't ideal and it does lead to some active projects
being taken off the active projects list.  For now, the best way to
avoid this is to make a small change to one of your project's web pages
every so often.  If anyone has thoughts about a better way to sort
projects by activity, feel free to add your comments to this bug:
