It should be exactly the same as it always ways, except instead of CVS
tags, we're using "archrelease" and "svn rm" (or archrm, which does
very little)

In essence:
   cd graphviz/trunk
   archrelease extra-i686 (or run extrapkg to do this and the scp upload)
   cd ../repos/
   svn rm testing-i686

Then you need to do the db-script side exactly as we always have done
it: both db-testing and db-extra need to be run, with a package in
$STAGING/add and one in $STAGING/del

Pierre's testing2extra script should do all this - but I have not used
it myself.

Jan, did you attempt to do it manually, or use the script?
