That is not the official noVNC code repository, it is an ancient
unmaintained fork that no one should still be using. It'd be good
if someone with commit access to that repo could either delete it,
or add a note that it isn't maintained & point people to the right

noVNC isn't actually a OpenStack project, rather it is maintained
by a 3rd party with the canonical upstream GIT being this link:


So this feedback is best directed to the upstream author.
