Status: solved with SLING-6264 - Getting issue details... STATUS

We have a lot of modules, especially in the contrib area which haven't been touched for years. Some are prototypes, some are outdated or not relevant anymore.

This site is a collection of modules to be proposed to be moved to the /attic folder of our codebase at

Moving to the attic does not imply any comment on the quality or usefulness of such modules. Modules that move to attic can also come back if needed, it's not necessarily forever.

Candidate modules from /contrib

  1. commons/html is referenced by contrib/extensions/rewriter which does seem to be actively maintained. Probably should keep.

  2. For the scripting languages it might just mean that they work and not much is needed, e.g. groovy / freemarker / velocity. I think we shoul also take into account how well tested they are.
