[PHP-DEV] Old branches
July 30, 2018 10:40AM
Hello internals

Recently, while checking some branches, I’ve noticed that we have really
old branches out there in php-src:

15+ years old:

- experimental/RETURN_REF
- experimetnal/RETURN_REF_PATCH
- experimental/pre_new_hash_func
- experimental/zts_stdc_scanners
- experimental/rand_redesign
- migration/EXPERIMENTAL
- experimental/namespaces
- migration/unlabaled-1.67.2
- experimental/ZendEngine2
- experimental/apache_hooks
- experimental/apache_hooks
- migration/unlabaled-1.3.2

10+ years old:

- migration/unlabaled-1.29.2
- migration/INITIAL
- migration/sqlite-start

Not even 5 years old, but no commit:

- str_size_and_int64_56_backport
- native-tls
- zend-signal-zts

Not even 2 years old, but no commit:

- microseconds


Do we keep them for a reason, like history, or we should delete, remaining
just the versions branches?

In my opinion, it would be sensible to delete all useless branches, i.e.
those which are completely stale, or have no commit.
