I object. Not entering testing could very well happen if the package's
dependencies are broken/buggy/uninstallable. In that case, it would make
zero sense to remove the package. Sure, packages having RC-bugs for
*long* times are another story, but depending on the package I propose
we fix[1] those.

Anyway, common sense should be (and is, by the RM,) applied.


[1] where fixing means: take a look at the package and its bugs. If they
are worth fixing, do it. If not, schedule the package for removal.
There's no sense in automatically removing packages just because they
hit a certain threshold.
