Not really, we have to add "Historical" to the list.
Some mature projects on Freshmeat: gcc, PHP, vim
I expect Mature projects to be roughly version 4 or later. They are not only 
working well and feature complete, but the feature set is well rounded up, 
the UI is polished, the codebase is known maintainable...

Yes, we could probably get rid of one.
