Proposals to cleanup fluid-project GitHub repositories

GitHub recently added the feature to archive repositories
<https://github.com/blog/2460-archiving-repositories>  This effectively
makes them read-only and flags them as archived. For fluid-project repos
<https://github.com/fluid-project>  this will be a way for us to
distinguish our current projects from ones which are no longer active. Note
that archived repos can still be forked and worked on elsewhere, and they
can be unarchived if work picks up again in the future.

I think that this will be a good opportunity for us to do some cleanup in
our GitHub space. Please see the two proposals below.

Thanks
Justin

Proposal #1:
==========

I propose that we mark the following repos as *archived*, update their
README and description to indicate this, close their open issues (GitHub
Issues and JIRA) and mothball their open PRs:


   - FestivalTextToSpeechService
   <https://github.com/fluid-project/FestivalTextToSpeechService>
   - jshint <https://github.com/fluid-project/jshint>
   - videoPlayer <https://github.com/fluid-project/videoPlayer>
   - sonification-design
   <https://github.com/fluid-project/sonification-design>
   - EPUB <https://github.com/fluid-project/EPUB>
   - metadata <https://github.com/fluid-project/metadata>
   - builder <https://github.com/fluid-project/builder>
   - image-gallery <https://github.com/fluid-project/image-gallery>
   - Captionator <https://github.com/fluid-project/Captionator>
   - studios.fluidproject.org
   <https://github.com/fluid-project/studios.fluidproject.org>
   - uio-gpii-integration
   <https://github.com/fluid-project/uio-gpii-integration>
   - old-kettle <https://github.com/fluid-project/old-kettle>
   - JSCSSP <https://github.com/fluid-project/JSCSSP>
   - build-scripts <https://github.com/fluid-project/build-scripts>
   - misc <https://github.com/fluid-project/misc>
   - xhr <https://github.com/fluid-project/xhr>
   - contributionSample
   <https://github.com/fluid-project/contributionSample>
   - documentation <https://github.com/fluid-project/documentation>
   - engage <https://github.com/fluid-project/engage>
   - osdpl <https://github.com/fluid-project/osdpl>
   - websites <https://github.com/fluid-project/websites>
   - workshops <https://github.com/fluid-project/workshops>


Proposal #2:
==========

Additional proposal is to *remove* the following repos:

   - data-dashboard <https://github.com/fluid-project/data-dashboard> ( the
   code is in fluid-lab/data-dashboard
   <https://github.com/fluid-lab/data-dashboard>, but there is a PR
   <https://github.com/fluid-project/data-dashboard/pull/1> in the
   fluid-project repo)
   - security-design <https://github.com/fluid-project/security-design> (looks
   like it was never used)
   - prefsEditors <https://github.com/fluid-project/prefsEditors> (this is
   a fork from GPII/prefsEditors <https://github.com/GPII/prefsEditors>,
   but not sure where the exploration tool
   <https://build.fluidproject.org/prefsEditors/demos/explorationTool/> is
   built from)
   - epubReader <https://github.com/fluid-project/epubReader> (this was a
   GSoC project and should be moved to fluid-lab
   <https://github.com/fluid-lab>)
   - www.floeproject.org
   <https://github.com/fluid-project/www.floeproject.org> (looks like it
   was never used and the floe site is done under the floeproject.org repo
   <https://github.com/fluid-project/floeproject.org>)
