Could you approve my solution or provide another one?

I suggest we do the following:

- If Emacs thumbs was not modified in the emacs repository, we could move your project to their repository, so the history is not lost. If it was modified, then we can at your option desactivate the project or modify its description so it tell the visitor that the project merged with Emacs. In the latter case, we can update the README in the repository to as to point the user to Emacs.

- As for mp3player, I suggest we modify the description to point to user to EMMS, and let project public, just in case the code is needed. I am pretty sure it is not possible to redirect the project - however a bit a Javascript in the description can do the trick.

In both cases, you could also remove yourself from the project, so the user sees nobody is working on it anymore.

What do you think?

What is the policy for removing Savannah projects?

Should they be completely deleted, or desactivated/moved (so the project's repository is still hosted, and eg can be consulted to check the history of thumbs, or reuse some parts of mp3player that are not in EMMS)?

I am admin of 2 projects hosted on Savannah and I want them removed.

Emacs thumbs -- Because it is now part of emacs and no more need to be
                downloaded/installed separately.

mp3player -- Because it is replaced by EMMS (I will no more develop
             mp3player, I will work on EMMS)
If it is possible for mp3player to redirect to EMMS (or
             be an alias of) it would be nice.
