Yes, I think all of those pages are from task forces that have fallowed. We have archived some things on meta. J

While on my simplification content renovation, I discovered two sections of pages that I think are old and need to be changed.

There's a bunch of information about several weekly meetings. http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/WPD:Community/Meetings

And a bunch of information about separate task forces:

This information continues to be presented as if it's current.

So here are my questions:

1) There are no longer any task forces or weekly task force meetings, right? Or have I been missing some secret society that's been going on behind my back for the last  months? :P

2) What shall we do about the dozen+ pages of content about these task forces?
a) delete them all
b) move them to some kind of archive (where? what?)
c) put a note on the top that says "no longer active" somehow, no longer provide links to them from main pages / in the main flow, and otherwise leave them as is


What do folks think? There's an argument to be made about keeping history & not deleting the web (see Jeremy Keith) and there's an argument to be made about UX and making things current and usable for today's user.
