My current plan is to remove all repositories in home projects, which have not
touched this year. Not touched means, no source submission and no meta data has
been altered at all.
Additionally also all non-home projects, which have not been touch in last two

I am agree with this solution, but ...

Which projects will get affected exactly ?
Find a full list here:

There is a project which has not been touched, but the repos are still anyway
important !
Just drop me a mail ....

I'm a little bit confused. My repo is listed in your list as home:Freespacer.pkg 2008

But this repo is work in progress. I create some branches and submit this package to the openSUSE Factory. My repo helps me to experiment with some packages and I organize some packages as an own subproject. My home main repository is always empty, but in your listing will this repo removed. The repo is for me very important.

Please take me out from the list. Every now and then, I remove myself unneeded projects or packages. On the other hand, I have linked some package or a part of the home repo in my blog and should not be removed.

Why not drop people a mail and ask them to remove it ?
Way to many accounts have no valid email adress and past experience showed
that people
are often not react when they lost interesst in their project.

My opinion is that is not good, the people do not ask for the removal of the repositories. If someone has left a bad email address, then it should be deleted. No question, because they had the chance to change their email address. What speaks against sending an email with a confirmation link to confirm the preservation of the repo. Once after a specified time received no response, the repo will be deleted. It is easier to implement and with little effort. Everyone gets a chance to react onto the mail

Some people have not even subscribed in the mailing list. They have no chance to appeal their objection.

May plan is to do the removal end of this week, except more discussion about
is needed.

Just tell me your opinion, also when you support this ;)
