I think the compatibility patches should be migrated if they're still relevant, but other than that, it all can go.

Hello all,

Now that we've migrated to the new GitLab, I think it is time we revisit
the repositories we are still keeping (in archived form):

* aports.git and aports-old.git

Both are over 100 MB and both contain nothing helpful or useful to us
any more.  They're snapshots of 2017 and 2018 Alpine packages, sometimes
with improvements that made it to system/ or user/.  If we want to
investigate how Alpine did something we can just look in their current
Git instead of an old mirror.  I'd like to remove both of these.

* portageplus.git

This is some patches to an old version of Portage, ca early 2017, that
supports emitting APK binpkgs.  It also defaults to Galapagos instead of
Gentoo as a fallback repository.  (How many here even remember Galapagos?)

We can probably archive the apkkit patch for posterity and then delete
it, IMO.

* patches.git

musl compatibility patches for some packages in /etc/portage/patches format.

My suggestion is take what we haven't packaged in packages.git and save
it somewhere (or maybe just package it?), then remove it.

* etc-portage.git, apkkit-conf.git, systemsite.git

Old infrastructure from when we were a Gentoo fork.  Maybe archive for
posterity, or delete it.

Comments welcome.
