No no, nothing is actually done yet. Everything else is exactly the
same as it always has been.

For reference:

What I am _planning_ on doing is do it all this way:
New package in non-testing repo
Package is in testing, and vercmp says it's older
   Delete SVN entry for testing
   Remove from testing DB
   Delete package file

All this would be part of running the DB scripts on gerolde but it is
not done yet. Right now it is exactly the same process as it has
always been
