It is my understanding that the 20-day RC removal is release
team policy implemented manually. The steps to fix this bug
(1) Identify the problem [done].
(3) Offer a solution [done] - specifically - "don't create 20-day
removal hints for packages with RC bugs except when its too
late for a fix to be included in the forthcoming release".
(3) Persuade the maintainer (release team) to accept the solution [WIP].
As you can see, I am doing the work, despite obstruction and
ad hominem attacks from those who should know better. If
there's code that needs to be updated I'll be happy to send
you a patch if you point me to the source, but my (possibly
faulty) understanding is that release team members were
generating the remove hints manually.
