I've killed several SVN repos due to:
- no upstream resources any more,
- upstream moved to git,
- upstream repository is no longer updated and software no longer
relevant or it was never made functional while nobody worked on them in
at least few years,
- upstream svn repos starved to death with incompatible SVN protocol
with recent clients.

As far as I remember dfu-util was the case of new upstream and original
repository starved to death.

A lot of VCS repos ship with old patches, not applying any more. Please
help to bring them up.
