Tomorrow, will turn off write access to all
remaining projects[0]. As such, Gentoo ebuilds which still have
HOMEPAGE= pointing there should be updated.

I've already created a list of possible edits:

Note that there are a _lot_ of projects that do not have a new
home. Some of these haven't seen updates since 2009. Some don't
even work anymore.

Still, many do have proper homepages (most of them moved to

Thus, I'll edit _all_ ebuilds for the specified packages to point
to their new homes, where available. I'm also considering filing
bugs against the remainder.

Things I will not touch:

- SRC_URI fields
- Ebuilds where HOMEPAGE is not _exactly_ as in the table linked
  above (this includes ebuilds with more than one URL in
- Any ebuild where the maintainer does the fix themselves or
  explicitly asks me not to.

The change itself will happen sometime this week to allow people
to do the changes on their own.
