If we think that there an important amount of code and we feel it
shouldnt be wasted, IMHO, we should simply remove the author from the
developers list and add a note saying that the project is no longer

If someone found the project interesting, he will be able to continue
it, if someone want to get a part of the sources, he will be able to
browse the CVS.

Finally, it's just like closing the account, as requested, and
reopening it to host the already released code, as we may do since all
the project registered on savannah is released under a license which
permit that.
