All retired packages are obsoleted by `fedora-retired-packages`.
I am in favor of the intention that when you upgrade,
those packages from previous releases are removed
automagically. After an upgrade I typically expect
the system and packages to be supported and
maintained in the same way as if I installed new.
And if I need some package that is no longer in
Fedora, I will build it for my personal or organizational
use and accept the additional support burden
explicitly and not by accident (and I often start by
leveraging the old .src rpms from Fedora).
FD: I spend time after every upgrade to remove old
retired packages, and not having to doing so would
make life easier.
