Description

I don't think we need to keep intrepid and hardy around anymore, and they clutter up things like "dareprepro ls". We should consider killing them, or moving them to old-releases.debathena.com or something.

Anyone have any thoughts on whether we should keep old distros around? I kind of want them to break if they have been EOL by upstream for > 1 year. However, maintaining two apt repos and moving things between them will probably get cumbersome pretty fast. It'd be trivial to move the suite from, e.g. jaunty to jaunty-eol ?

At a minimum, I am going to delete packages from the -proposed and -development for EOL'd releases.

Replying to jdreed:

I just did this today. -staging, -development and -proposed are empty for all obsolete releases except natty and lucid, and I'll clean those up in the fall.
