As far as I am concerned, I feel we can stick to the policy we discussed a while ago, described in "Hacking Savannah".

In the present case, I guess we will delete everything "to avoid confusion". For a GNU project, it is delicate to remove all since the account needed to update pages and mailing-lists, that GNU maintainers should primarily use. But since RMS agrees, fine.
However, maybe RMS should Cc us, so as to confirm such decisions.

What we may do though is creating a new minimal group type where nothing is possible except changing the project description so as to point to the new location.

We currently have a few requests to remove projects from Savannah in
support queue, but before I take the plunge I'd like to request some

In the case where projects have moved to another Free Software hosting
service I understand it's our policy to delete the project, but I'm
sure whether that should also mean that other data belonging to the
project should also be removed.

For example, say project `foo' has moved, should I just delete
project via the front-end or should I also remove the it's CVS
webcvs repository, download area, any existing mailing lists, etc?

Also, in the case of removing a GNU project, what is the procedure?
this current request for example:


  I wish to drop the GNU FriBidi (fribidi) project from Savannah, and
  drop lists fribidi-list, fribidi-announce, and bug-fribidi.

  We have already set up GNU FriBidi on, with
  from RMS.


In this case what should we do?  Delete the project?  Delete the
and all of it's data?  Close the project?  Anything else?
