[kde-community] retiring unmaintained modules?

I was bored today when a build took longer than expected (and didn't fail 
as expected), so I was fiddling with bugzilla. That was when I started 
wondering whether we have any criteria to declare a module unmaintained 
and ready to retire from bugzilla, reviewboard and to put the git repos in 
an attic.

Unless there is already one, I'd like to propose a formal criterion: less 
than one new bug reported and less than one bug closed during the previous 
calendar year. We do have quite a few of such modules, and some of them 
have quite a few open issues, and do clutter up reviewboard.

Maybe it's even worth considering replacing the 'and' with an 'or'.
