Rune's branch is left around as a tribute, I believe.  Back in the day (2.10 or 
so?) he completed a lot of significant work on Lilypond, then died by suicide.

I believe that at this time, it would be appropriate to remove Rune' branch.  
But I am only one person.

    Hi all,
    there are currently 38 branches (out of 72 in total) in the canonical
    repository that have a committed date older than 90 days, excluding the
    stable/* branches. I suppose many of these were temporary, abandoned in
    the mean time or simply don't apply anymore. IMHO this might become
    problematic over time as we accumulate branches because important ones
    will be harder to find.
    For that reason, I'd like to ask everyone to go through the list below
    and delete your branches that you don't need anymore, from both GitLab
    and Savannah (or let me know and I can do it). Also please remember to
    delete branches of closed merge requests to avoid this problem in the
    future. Or open MRs from your private fork in which case I don't care
    how many branches you have ­čśë (I use this all the time and there's no
    disadvantage, you even benefit from the fast CI if you're a Developer
    in the project.)
    I'm aware that some persons listed below are probably not following
    this list anymore. I might ping those individuals with a large quantity
    of branches. We might need a policy for dealing with branches where the
    owner doesn't respond, but let's save this discussion for later.
