Liam, thanks for your comments, an additional note: this is actually NOT the old page as in theory whenever we'll have a new way of handling projects views the former (and to be considered old) website is going to be . In 2013 we migrated several of those links to what projects.gnome.org is today and left projects-old un-maintained (individual maintainers were taking care of maintaining their own projects) which led to multiple of those links to become obsolete / historical (pre 2010) / not relevant anymore. Do you see any value in keeping those URLs around even if they're historical and not relevant since several years?
