Disk space is cheap -- if there's *any* chance you might want to
resurrect any of those project in the future, I recommend leaving them
just as they are and ignoring them.  (There really isn't any value in
"cvs remove"ing an entire project just to move the RCS files into the
Attic, just don't check those projects out any more.)  That said, if
you're really sure you won't ever need them again and you really need
the disk space, there's no harm in just deleting the RCS files (and
directories) from the repository.
