Follow-up Comment #2:

Hi Nick,  I have assigned the ticket to me so that it will show up in my queue
so that it doesn't get lost.  Your original ticket was submitted before I
started volunteering.

Whenever someone asks for their project source to be deleted it raises all
kinds of waving red flags.  This is why no one wants to deal with removing
projects.  It is a toxic item.

For some reason git seems to have 100x the number of requests to remove source
code over any other version control system.  Personally I am an advocate for
git.  I use it.  I like it.  And so I often handle many of the git related
tickets.  But since Savannah is all about software free(dom) it means that I
need to check three times that everything is happening above board in a
transparent way and people are not trying to suppress published code. 
Unfortunately this does happen too often.  And therefore as software source
code curators we must be extra diligent when dealing with the topic.

Sometimes people convert from cvs to git and have a few iterations before they
get everything converted in a good way.  That is often the case and perfectly
reasonable. It might be that this is what you are doing.  I couldn't find any
cvs source code for your project so I could not check.  Where is it located?

Please say a few words about the background for your project to get me up to
speed about what is happening.  Please say a few words about what it is you
did and why you want to have your project removed.  Or why you want to rewrite
your project history.  Normally you publish your changesets and once published
they are published.  Genies are easy to let out of the bottle but once out
they don't like to go back into them.
