if possible, I'd like DLRN to keep building these to keep track of
their statuses and allow running CI jobs so that they don't get left
out.
It'd mean adding logic so that DLRN skip regenerating repo snapshot
and put them in a separate staging repo.

Considering the low number of pinned packages, I'm +0 about it.
