This is a really important point (at least to me). I think it would be
really helpful to remove obsolete branches for many subprojects. I
commonly look at xf86-video-ati and there are branches that haven't been
touched in 4 years. Or mesa which has branches that weren't touched in 8

Is there a common guideline on how to:
a) find out a branch is obsolete and not a single bit of it is
b) porpose branches for removal?
