It looks like the branch was pruned from the SourceForge Allura repository,
but it's still available on the ASF Allura repository, at:;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/si/5566

I can't personally speak to the code for that branch, since I haven't

millions of users & projects that SF has), but the feature is available and
