According to the fate, dropping them for SLE-15sp2 is fine, SLE-11 is
also well and truly end of life.
because a consumer went away (yast, and there were actually
sound objections to that removal!) is also no reason to remove any meta
data from the packages.
+1 from me (personally)
I somewhat personally agree with this sentiment, however the issue was
decided some 15 months back and has taken a while to finally implement
no one chose to raise these concerns then and so the people who are
passionate about removing them have gone through and done the work
required to make it possible to drop them.
There are now suggestions on factory of a "better" way to implement this
and we have a copy of all the groups locally that could be used as a
starting point without them needing to stay in Factory.
