Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

dev team,
please do housekeeping on stable repo.
it takes a long time (few mins :p , long enough to irritate) scanning thru 52,000 packages, sometime it also crash.
please get rid off obsolete packages, segregate packages for mx15, 16, 17...future releases.
thank you.
