Just checking you saw my reply to the same email from Paul?

I might be missing some context, but I *think* my email could be
interpreted as an objection based on the reasons listed in it.

Also, the understanding I took away from the PTG session was that
there was consensus *not* to archive repos, but rather to ensure that
mirroring and redirects are set up properly.  However I am of course
very willing to be persuaded otherwise.

Please could you take a look at that mail and let us know what you
think?  Thanks!
