Ok, we have a new thread (thanks, Nicolas).

Could we use it to clarify what's the policy on public branches on the repo (or, in general, our nettiquete wrt the emacs repo)? (So we can document it.)

One thing that I dislike is having 66 branches in git branch -r, of which 41 are definitely obsolete (other-branches/* and old-branches/* are, except for cairo, between 3 and 18 years old)

Among the non-(old|other) branches there are also a few (the last four in this list) that seem too less than active:

origin/master                                            28 minutes ago
origin/concurrency                                        3 days ago
origin/fix/no-undo-boundary-on-secondary-buffer-change    8 days ago
origin/scratch/isearch-show-toggles                       8 days ago
origin/xwidget_mvp                                        2 weeks ago
origin/scratch/dbusbind-type-tests                        9 weeks ago
origin/scratch/dbusbind-type                             10 weeks ago
origin/emacs-24                                           3 months ago
origin/stream                                             3 months ago
origin/scratch/project                                    4 months ago
origin/scratch/quote-escaping                             4 months ago
origin/scratch/dynamic-modules-2                          5 months ago
origin/scratch/remove-internal-field                      6 months ago
origin/scratch/highlight-n-windows                        7 months ago
origin/scratch/fix-info-dups                              7 months ago
origin/shr-fontified                                      9 months ago
origin/xwidget                                            9 months ago
origin/scratch/xref                                      10 months ago
origin/dynamic-modules-rc2                               11 months ago
origin/nsm                                               12 months ago
origin/emacs-23                                           2 years, 9 months ago
origin/pending                                            3 years, 7 months ago
origin/gtk-tabs                                           5 years ago
origin/x-tabs                                             5 years ago

I know that some old branches (though not all) are perhaps of historical interest. But, isn't there any way to remove them and yet keep their content from being pruned? Tags or something?
