you don't answer the question. i'm not asking what to do in svn, that's
pretty easy. but if we do only what you suggest, then the packages will
stay installed on systems upgraded from mageia 1. and if the package is
unmaintained, we don't want that to happen: we want the package to be
uninstalled from all mageia 2 installs.

the question is: how? which package is to obsolete the list of unwanted
