I think we need some notion for projects that are inactive (or even
stopped) so that newcomers are not frustrated after reading some
high-flying project descriptions.

For example, go to Eclipse Technology Projects and look at the
subprojects section.

There you see highly active projects like AspectJ right next to
projects like Koi and Stellation that haven't produced anything in
months (or even years). If you try to access their mailing list
archives you end up in browser nirwana (404).

Are projects watched by some entity and eventually taken offline?

Absolutely they are watched by the Technology PMC. I agree that it looks
like some of the projects look like they have completed their work and are
inactive. I know the Technology PMC is having those discussions.

We don't have a firm timeline for any particular actions as currently most
of our energy is going into getting all of these new projects off to a good
start.
