Consolidating Repos?

Maybe this discussion belongs on the mailing list (we can always move it there), but it's more of a meta-question. I've gone through and updated the page; e.g. all the old cvs commits have been merged into the git tree and the cvs server powered down (very nice). But some of the code related to the project is still scattered about or... of unclear providence? I'm just looking for clarification on a few things, but beyond just updating this page, I wonder if we could reorganize the repos themselves.

Specifically, I'm wondering about...

  • The new wiki: I'm not clear on if it even needs its own code, or is it all MediaWiki and general WineHQ theming (Jeremy?) If it does have some custom code, can we add that to the WineHQ git server? And if not, should we write up a quick how-to on mirroring somewhere?
  • Sourceforge: I know we were trying to move away from it some, but that consolidation hasn't been finished in a few ways...
    • It still appears to be the go-to place for Slackware packages. If that's the packager's preference, let's not fix what ain't broken, but perhaps we could offer those for download on WineHQ or somewhere else? I can email Simone myself to ask at some point.
    • I can see the value in still uploading the source packages, especially if the Slackware packages stay there too, but is there a reason to keep the other old files and packages? Or is that a dumb question and what's uploaded on sourceforge stays on sourceforge?
    • The wine-gecko git repo there seems alive & well (is that the upstream repo?), but there are long-abandoned mirrors of the wine and wine-test-bot code.
    • Finally, CVS is still turned on there even though it's been mostly cleared out. All that's left is an empty folder for docs and an outdated version of the old wiki code
  • winezeug: Even though it's mostly abandoned and I don't think it qualifies as part of the Wine project proper, I thought it was worth including. It would probably be good if someone with a better idea of what's still useful and what's been superseded decided how to treat it on the wiki. -- KyleAuble (talk) 15:05, 27 February 2016 (CST)
