What is about fixing bugs or adding features in an earlier version (e.g. 8.0)? We do cherry-picking and create a new PR for 9.0 and 10.0, right? Does this still work when a addon is removed because it was not ported in two versions, but will added again for a later version? On the other side: When a module was dead for two versions it should stayed buried and replaced by a complete new one (especially with the API change since then).

So I vote for removing addons not ported since 2 versions, but keeping the other ones and setting them uninstallable as it was done for 10.0.

I'd personally love to see the 11.0 branch completely empty of uninstallable addons, and grow as they become migrated.

The git size problem is not a problem for me anymore, because since long ago I got used to always clone shallow repositories (git clone --depth 100 $repo), so the size does not matter much.

Our migration instructions take care of keeping history, and you can review only the migration commits in a PR nowadays, so the little diff in PRs is not a need anymore.

This would remove garbage code and the need to explain many "whys".

Just my 2 cents :)
