After 2020, nobody requested membership.  Closing without developing a Savane feature to reject requests in 'dead' groups.

I think it's OK to keep the project around, but there should be a way to mark it as "closed" or "dead" and then have Savannah reject requests for membership right away for those projects which are so marked.

You haven't.  You are free to ignore them.

If we have to do this until the end of our lives, yes.

Is it really a problem that people will request membership (if they do)?  The maintainer could just reply and direct them to the right place.

Ah...  So the actual goal is to reduce the noise from people who do not read the page but request access anyway.  Gotcha.

There may be something that can be done about that...  It will need some code changes though.  Which means lots of patience.  But seemingly that would be a useful improvement.  Thank you for sharing that problem with us.

Thanks for the note.

I did as you suggested, but I'm pessimistic that it will solve our problem, is that people still request membership every now and then.

Policy is that projects are not removed from Savannah. Therefore I have no choice other than to say so and to close this ticket.

However the project is clearly marked to direct people over to emacs. It looks to me like the hg repository is empty.  I unchecked the mercurial option for the project so that option would not be displayed any longer.

I think in this case if the cvs repository were checked out, had all of the files removed and committed, then a README file committed that directed anyone there over to emacs, that there would be no problem.  That would seem helpful.  It would preserve the historical record of the project in the cvs archives for anyone who wishes to research into it.  That seems like a good compromise to me.  What do you think?

The elisp-code project has long (very long) been defunct, and has no active purpose.  Could it be deleted?
