Hi Bob,

I remove files, as you suggested, in the 3 repositories.
Then you can close this request.

Thank you.

Hi Sebastien,

Generally software curators don't like to remove published software. If you were abducted by aliens and someone else wanted to research previous versions then the previously published versions should be available.

Here is a suggestion. Simply remove all of the files from your repository. Commit a README file as the only file remaining in the project. In that README file direct anyone reading it to your new source location. Then all actions are just normal all around.

git rm ./*
...Say that the source has moved and direct the reader there...
git add README
git commit
git push

That would maintain the archive history nicely and direct anyone accessing it to your current repository.

I want to remove 3 git repositories, but can't find any way in the admin tools in the project to do it.
I already removed git in tools used, but looks like the repositories still exist.
If this requires some manual actions, then please delete these git repositories (they have been moved to github):


Note: I want to keep everything else in weechat/qweechat projects (trackers, mailing lists, ...), so only git repositories must be deleted.
