Debian "removed" archive( [ alexandria-Support Requests-613931 ] Project registration rejection: debianremoved)

	Well, I tried creating a "removed" archive using sourceforge and
they don't like "content" based projects. Does anyone have any suggestions
as to where I can host this "content" part of my project?

Summary: Project registration rejection: debianremoved

Initial Comment:
Project Full Name:  Debian "removed"
Project Unix Name:  debianremoved

I do not know why this project was rejected. Did I
forget to fill in a form?

I would like to create a Debian archive of removed
packages (I'm told this would have few packages). I
would like to see this archive included in the regular
Debian archives (this will require a demonstration and
likely a vote). In order to get this Debian package
archive included in the regular Debian archives a
proposal is needed and I felt this would fall under the
scope of the project.

Code may be needed to help automate importing of
packages from the Debian archives. This seems like an
appropriate place to develop this code as well.

A further suggestion had been made that a script be
created to say why packages were removed from
Debian. I felt this project would also be the
appropriate place for this.

Hi Drew,

SF.NET's mission is the development of Open Source
Applications.   From reading your description it appears
that you will be developing some applications but the main
focus is a 'content' repository of removed debian packages.

Historically SourceForge.net does not provide hosting for
'content' based projects.

This, I believe, is why the project was rejected during the
first pass.

If you feel this project is not a 'content' based project,
please explain in some more detail the application(s) you
will be developing in thie project.

I'm closing the ticket now, but feel free to open it up
again to add additional information.
