See... that's where I would have stopped and asked myself the following:

 Self, why can't a find this package in bodhi.... it must be obsoleted
by a newer version. Hey let me search via the web interface and
see...yes..yes it was. I'll give it a day and let my mirrors sync up
so I can get the latest _test_ update so I can provide feedback that
will be useful. Good thinking self, you've earned a beer and a
baconiase infused devilled egg.

Once a testing package is obsoleted by newer testing packages, why do
we need to keep those packages in bodhi's interface? Why do we need to
duplicate this at all? If you can't find a package in bodhi any longer
that means its no longer the latest available update and its no longer
relevant to the discussion.
