The Password Policy module (https://drupal.org/project/password_policy) has an unused 8.x-1.x branch with a single commit deleting all 7.x-1.x files. The actual D8 version of the module is in the 8.x-3.x branch.
I am trying to delete the 8.x-1.x branch because it is unused and a nuisance. (People mistakenly submit issues against it.) But:
$ git push origin :8.x-1.x Enter passphrase for key '/home/aohrvetpv/.ssh/id_rsa': remote: The branch '8.x-1.x' is identified as an official development branch on Drupal.org, and therefore cannot be deleted.
Is there a way I can remove it? If not, could someone possibly remove it for us?
