The email was automated, and it was requested that I send it out again.

I'm sorry I forgot to reply to your previous message.  For what it's
worth I believe that Kevin Fenzi is working on LXDE

The way that script works it talks direct to the packagedb so packagedb
thinks it's branched and could therefore be orphaned/retired.  Do you
have an example of a package for which you think a branch is not in place?

As for the packages that should be retired, all EPEL devs were asked to
place nobranch files into the EL-5 branch prior to the branching for
EL-6, several months ago.  Just use the nice big "Retire package" button
in pkgdb.
