I’m making this a meta-bug to record the evaluation of demos and tools, in followup with the thread “Signs of neglect?” started on http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-dev/2010-June/101092.html.

Some of them have already been adopted or deleted. Please add yourself to Misc/maintainers.rst when you adopt one.

I also propose adding either a section in the README or a new README.removed file to list the deletions; there are probably people out there using these tools (maybe not demos, though), so it’s more polite to tell them “metaclasses is removed, see this doc for modern built-in metaclasses” than to just remove the file.

Regarding testing, please comment on #9153.
