There is a difference between orphaning or end of lifeing. Orphans
need a timeout before they can be tossed.
Hm, sure, I understand that, but could you clarify which of the cases above
(1st: 6 listed packages or 2nd: cdiff) you're replying to? I'm having
problems inferring the context.
To clarify: cdiff was just a side note. What I wanted to point out that
Warren's message said "removal of packages from rawhide who have been without
owners since prior to Fedora 8", but the listed packages included several
packages that had owners until _after_ Fedora 8, so someone could be
interested in verifying that the list indeed includes packages that it was
intended to include. I don't care that deeply, I did orphan those packages
