remove old branches

Does anyone protest to removing all of the branches from the main repo except:

  • master

  • v1.4.x

  • v1.4.2-doc

Having old branches around can lead to confusion (see https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/pull/3748#issuecomment-61372162).

What about having a “matplotlib/matplotlib-archive” fork where old branches and tags can be kept? That way someone can always go back and install an old version if they really need to.

As a person who was distracted by too many branches in that list, I fully support this.

I think this is reasonable. If anything, I might want to keep N+1 branches, but that might be too much.

Seems to me like a good idea.
