Great! Thanks for your interest. In the light of this, I cancel the
removal request in #147987.

I agree. Once we did it a few times, I expect the workflow to become
pretty smooth.

I agree. Let's just ignore those releases for now then, unless someone
else is using tor on those releases and would like to provide testing
for SRUs.

Thank you!
