shibboleth-resolver should move -- Sam Hartman was actively maintaining
that package, and it's still current.
opensaml and shibboleth-sp are of historical interest only; I'm not sure
if it's worth preserving the historical repositories outside of the Alioth
archives. I'd probably lean towards no.
shibboleth-idp2 was a non-Policy-compliant packaging of an old version of
the IdP. A proper packaging would require packaging a vast set of Java
dependencies and is very non-trivial. I think it's fine for that
repository to get archived; I doubt it's useful for anyone, since there
have been major revisions of the IdP since then.
