I'll be embarking on a contact effort over the next couple weeks
to query posters of help wanted for projects [1] from oldest on up
as to whether the help is still needed, and if not, that they
please close the request.  If help _is_ still needed, I'll
encourage them to refresh the request and also post some news
regarding their projects if they are indeed active.  I'm
reviewing earlier efforts at this for ideas to write up some polite
and encouraging text. 

I'm tracking progress in the spreadsheet linked to below:

This spreadsheet shows all perceived stale jobs on Savannah, the project they
are associated with, the user who posted the job, when the user was contacted
with the text below, when the user responded and whether the job was closed or
not.  Notes are included for special responses.

=== Message Template 
(Thanks to Brandon Invergo for initial template.)


My name is Christian Bryant and I am helping to review the Help Wanted section
of Savannah, the GNU software forge.  The following posts of yours are still
marked as "open" in the system:<>&job_id=<>

Are these calls still open?

In an effort to keep the Help Wanted section up-to-date, if they are still
open, we would like to encourage you to update them. If a position's
description has not changed, a trivial addition to the text should be enough
to update the post's date. If the positions are no longer open, then we would
request that you set their status to "Closed," which would hide them from
view. Keep in mind that if the position becomes available again, you are
welcome to re-open the call.

Thank you very much for your help.


Christian Bryant
