Sure, feel free to make suggestions on final place of items on structure

this kinda looks unmaintained to me, last commit is in 2014/15, and
otherwise seems untouched, should unmaintained be better place for this?

Good that we have backup for backup applications </bad pun>, anyway
would it make sense to move this otherway around? (kbackup -> system?) I
kind of consider backup "system"/"core" stuff...

Thanks for noticing the second-level namespaces, I completely overlooked
it seems

I've flattened these ones.

I guess it can go into education, but looking at content I am more
inclined to think that this belongs into unmaintained, aren't those
applications instead using the GHNS? I am not even sure where this
content is hosted if at all (seems to have .php files in there)

I've flattened necessitas and strigi.
