[Gluster-devel] Updating the repository's actual 'ACTIVE'ness status

Hi all,

We have 101 repositories in gluster org in github. Only handful of them are
being actively managed, and progressing.

After seeing https://github.com/gluster/gluster-kubernetes/issues/644, I
feel we should at least keep the status of the project up-to-date in the
repository, so the users can move on to other repos if not maintained.
Saves time for them, and they wouldn't form a opinion on gluster project.
But if they spend time on setting it up, and later find that its not
working, and is not maintained, they would feel bad about the overall
project itself.

So my request to all repository maintainers are to mark a repository as
'Archived'. And update the README (or description) to reflect the same.

In any case, On April 1st week, we should actively mark them inactive if no
activity is found in last 15+ months. For other repos, maintainer's can
take appropriate action.
