considering that our script collection is in very bad shape (many scripts are
broken or obsolete, and we have the license issue already discussed), I
suggest to proceed as follows:
We should single out a list of officially maintained scripts that are
confirmed to be working, are still relevant, have a clear license and that at
least one person is interested in. All other scripts should be moved to a
"legacy" folder which is kept around for curiosity's sake. Of course there
will be the option of promoting a script from the legacy folder to the list of
official scripts when someone comes around who cares about the script and
fixes it or at least files a bug.
I don't have a lot of time at the moment, but probably I'll at least start to
do this. This undertaking will heavily depend on user input anyway as I have
no idea which scripts people are actually using.
What do you guys think about this plan?
