True, but at the moment, only the project page says that. 
<http://pyxml.sourceforge.net/> and 
<http://pyxml.sourceforge.net/topics/> are the top 2 Google hits for "pyxml" 
and don't mention anything about it. In fact the former seems to have recently 
gone missing. Did I miss an announcement of its retirement? It used to look 
like this: <http://web.archive.org/web/20080429132440/http://pyxml.sourceforge.net/> 

I suggest restoring something (anything) to 
<http://sourceforge.net/projects/pyxml/> to say what the PyXML project is, 
that it's no longer maintained, and to link to the other sites, if not also to 
say that a new maintainer would be welcomed despite the declining usefulness 
of the package.

I also suggest putting a "PyXML is no longer maintained" on the old topics
