Removing groups from Savannah

Savannah is designed to protect and preserve data, not lose it, so normally we don't delete groups.

In practice, we only remove groups when:

  • The group is empty, and the admin has no plans to use it.
  • The package migrates somewhere else and is available from another source.
  • The package is grossly incompliant with our hosting requirements.

We have no standard workflow for deleting groups, Savannah admins just remove parts of the group one by one manually, and some rudiments may remain e.g. on FSF admin's side for years.
