Hi Ben,

I am developing a new version of the "opensrc" plugin for Lokalize [1]
and it currently depends on kde_projects.xml. Of course I can add new
code to scan the Git repo instead of just fetching kde_projects.xml,
however it would be more complicated.

Is there any good reason for killing kde_projects.xml? Would that
really reduce the workload on Sysadmin team?
I can't suspect any "moving parts" in the generator that may require
