I dont think there is a problem keeping the upstream git repository as 
an historical artifact if we convey the message that it's no longer 
actively being maintained properly.

And I think we can achieve that via the news file as you propose, as 
well as the readme file for github and arguably a mention in the next 
systemd release.

Then we along with downstream distributions could close all bugs filed 
against it once it has been announced.
