There's intertwined questions here... * the old URLs should continue to resolve to useful resources, even if they are not the resources . Don't break links. * the old project information may have historical value, and there may well be people still using the old versions of the software. “Not relavant” depends on context. But maybe they the files are accessible through archive.org. * there's information about each of the projects on the main "ancient" project-old cover page which is not duplicated on the newest pages; it's probably out of date, but adding the information to the page listing all the projects would surely be a large benefit. So i'd say, wait until you hear from the engagement team about plans to automate the list of projects (or whatever), and then put HTTP redirects in place, or a script that tries to find the best match, or redirect them all to a page that says they've gone away, says how to find both the newest versions and maybe also suggests how to find the old source code. Even that projects-old page wasn't complete in that it dropped some gnome 1 projects, and the world didn't end :) so i'm not saying keep everything around forever, and i'm glad you sent mail asking for comments. i've probably used more of your time than it's worth, now :) thanks for replying.
