I have closed "Product: dbus / Component: perl" for new bug reports.
Old (closed) bug reports will stay.

Either is fine from my point of view. If you continue to be the maintainer
(or unmaintainer) then I think it should be in your preferred location,
and if someone else takes over, it should move to their preferred location
if different.

Please contact this mailing list if you or a subsequent maintainer find
yourself wanting a D-Bus-related git repo on freedesktop.org in future.
