This is to inform you that starting on Jan 11, 2022 IT will be archiving any GitHub repos in the Mozilla org ( that have not been updated since April 1, 2019.  If you would like your repo to not be archived, simply committing an updated status to the README  is sufficient to remove it from consideration.  Archiving the repo will make it read only.   

Per GitHub best practices, we will be closing all open issues and PRs (after labeling them as having been closed as part of archiving).  Anyone who is subscribed to the repo may receive emails due to this archiving activity.

In order to limit the impact of email flooding we will only be archiving < 100 repos per day.  

The archiving process is reversible, so if a repo that should not be archived IS archived, it can be easily rolled back (including restoring the PR’s and issues that were open at the time of archiving).  In order to do that, please file a bug at the link below, with the repo name, and a brief description of how it is still in use. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to or #github-admin on matrix.
