Subject Re: How to we handle deprecated modules?
Date Tue, 15 Jan 2019 14:28:05 GMT
Badging should be possible, I'm not sure right now we have an example of
deprecated projects which are in GitHub. If someone wanted to point me to
one, I could check why it's not badged properly.

A few additional thoughts/questions:

   - As an interim, could we prepend deprecated / obsolete repos with a H1
   to the effect of "This module has been [deprecated|replaced] [link to new
   module / discussion"
   - Ideally, to support badging / displaying the deprecated repositories
   together they should be in the aggregator/default.xml list
   - Ideally, the master branch of the repository would contain the code at
   the final state for the project before deprecation -- that way we can read
   it in the badge generator and modules list scripts
   - Ideally, we'd also keep an authoritative list of the repos which are
   deprecated so we can drive the list and badges off that
