Never!  Viva la sourceware!

I wasn't suggesting linking to this page, just providing a concrete
example on your page like it does.

I only intended to mention gcc-gnats, gcc-ftp, gcc-cvs.  Other
repositories which happen to be available on this system should
not be advertised on gcc.gnu.org.

I think they were doing their work on subversion.gnu.org, but I don't
know for sure.

There's no good way to find that out from rsync.  The idea is that
someone says, "I like cygwin.  What cygwin things are available by rsync?"

Yeah, there are several repositories (cygwin is one, in fact) that were
folded into the "src" repository on sourceware over the last year.  Their
old repositories still exist to serve their web pages.  These web pages
_could_ all be folded into the "src" repo, but no one has modified the
web-page-updating script to do that, so the old repos remain.  It's not
a huge deal, it only leaks through in a few small things like the rsync
list.

FWIW the list that you get by running 'rsync rsync://gcc.gnu.org/' is
auto-generated out of cron, so every project, whether it's active or 
abandoned, is going to get listed there.
