These are now orphaned.
So I've actively retired these as, for at least a few of my packages,
they also allowed me to retired a bunch of stuff that I had some how
ended up "maintaining".
I think these sort of long tail packages should be actively moved to
places like copr if people wish to keep them around. I think this
should be a subject that FESCo actively addresses.
That aside thank you Paul for actively maintaining them as long as you did.
