There are some packages that have been removed from the archive, but
their repositories still reside on the med-team salsa namespace.
It might be helpful to preserve such repositories in case someone
in future might want to re-introduce them, but at the same time probably
keeping it at s.d.o/med-team/<pkg> isn't the best thing to do.
I propose moving it to a subspace on the salsa med team namespace,
something like: https://salsa.debian.org/med-team/attic
As an example, the ruby-team does something similar: https://salsa.debian.org/ruby-team/attic
On Fedora, they replace all file on master (rawhide) branch with "dead
file" but the previous source code are still available on previous
branch (fedora released version). For example.
Moving https://salsa.debian.org/med-team/pkg to
https://salsa.debian.org/med-team/attic/pkg will keep something such as
issue tracking, PR, wiki too? If possible to keep everything, it would
be better too.
