I don't think that was actually made clear in the initial proposal. I'd
been assuming that the proposal was _exactly_ to remove the GA set.
Usually, when a newer package shows up in any given repository, we don't
keep the previous version of the package, do we? So I assumed the
proposal was expecting that behaviour for the combined repository.
