The "correct" way to do this is to use orphaning procedure. This way, anybody
interested will have enough time to take over the to-be removed packages.
Also, all packages that are orphaned for 6+ weeks get retired. This will happen before
F34, so there is no harm in doing this through orphans.
Actually, if nothing requires it and it is upstream dead, retiring directly is
fine. So is orphaning I guess.
