> should 2.5.3 ... be deleted?

S2_5_3 is a branch we had for making 2.5.3 outside-S2_5. It was an emergency release we made by taking only cherry-picked fixes over 2.5.2, not everything we had in S2_5 at the time.
I see no point in making the situation less clear by removing the branch, even though 2.5.3 tag can be used to get the version history of that release.

The Freeciv-web branch in svn can be deleted. Thanks for saying that Freeciv-web is alive and kicking on github.

At the moment http://svn.gna.org/viewcvs/freeciv/branches/ or http://svn.gna.org/svn/freeciv/branches/ looks rather odd, should 2.5.3 and freeciv-web be deleted?

Rationale: freeciv-web is alive and kicking on github, the eight years old SVN branch only muddies the water.

And if http://freeciv.wikia.com/wiki/Release_Cycle and http://freeciv.wikia.com/wiki/Release got it right there should be no 2.5.3 branch, or rather, whatever it was good for, with Freeciv at 2.5.4 the special 2.5.3 case could be useless now.
