As soon as we have the list of packages in the rc release (next week)
we can update the wiki page and the branching scripts should refuse to
branch it since it's already in.

Yeah, it will need to be retired and possibly blocked. ;(

Hopefully there's not too many other changes.


Somehow I never saw these responses.  Thanks for answering and orphaning that branch.

I was just checking out the new pkgdb and decided to look at this package in it.  There is a '- Retire Package' button, So I tried it and selected the epel7 branch.  It just took me to a page that only showed what the retire pop up had previously shown.  When I went back to the page the epel7 branch showed blocked, so thats good.
