15 I agree that sunrise should be retired, but this must be done
16 gracefully, because people (including myself) are still using some
17 packages from it.
19 A grace period (between read-only state and removal from layman and
20 other listings) should be at least one year, maybe several years
21 as was suggested in another e-mail here. This way people will be
22 able to safely migrate and pick any packages of interest from
23 sunrise to the main tree or other repos.
25 Best regards,
