I checked quickgit, and judging by commits, and disregarding scripty 
commits, there are 191 candidates. See attached file. Of course, some of 
these projects aren't really dead, they are just finished, I didn't go 
through them to check that out.

Judging by bugs is a bit harder, it needs a query on bugzilla, but from 
the top-100, these are all pretty dead, it seems.
