I think that's a bit too aggressive. We have a lot of software which is a bit beyond maintenance, and people run it sometimes. While everybody should upgrade, deleting the package immediately isn't really helpful to users. But, I see your point. So perhaps just after Q4 is cut, and we can warn about removal in the Q3 announcement?
