If the intent is to keep it, it needs to be labeled with big fat warning 
that it only exist as an historical artifact.

That is not a problem with the github mirror since there you can just 
add that notice/warning to the README however the official repository 
should be deleted otherwise it might cause confusion among end users and 
distributions since it exist there with the systemd/systemd-stable 
repositories and as far as I know there is no easy means of conveying 
such message in cgit. ( but I might be wrong )

Other distribution than Fedora should as well retire it since it has 
outlived it's usefulness in them as it has in Fedora.
