I'm in the process of transitioning maintenance of all software

compared to maintenance of non-modular, "ursine" packages. Starting from
Fedora 29 modules are first-class citizens, so I am finally able to
orphan ursine packages that are already available in modules.
This is exactly what I feared when the modules were first proposed:
essential packages moving to modules only.
I think this is absolutely a step in the wrong direction. Things like "ant"
are essential parts of a distribution. They cannot sit in some module with
arbitrary branches that can be EOLed at any time.
