Hi all,

As the procedure recently changed a little and many people have gotten
it wrong for a long time I wanted to bring to everyones attention the
proper procedure to retire a package that is no longer useful.

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_remove_a_package_at_end_of_life

its now one step from the CLI assuming you have a new enough fedpkg
installed fedpkg-1.13-1 or newer. many thanks to Till for the
implementation.

Also please note that you are not to Retire packages for stable
Fedora's we have no way to remove them and If you retire it they will
be in a weird state where the package will be in the repos and
available to install but koji will say its blocked. It will create
confusion for both users and fellow developers. So DO NOT DO IT.

Thanks

Dennis
