Do you mean the package removal? This only applies to binary packages
that you've chosen to delete or that have been superseded by another
package, so it should have minimal impact. If you think it will have a
negative effect on your work, please tell us about it.

The reason for removing packages is simply to free up disk space. It
seems like a waste of space to be hosting packages that people have
chosen to delete or that have been superseded by a newer version.

However, if you have a specific reason why that's a problem then we're
always willing to talk about better ways of doing it.
