The above have not been moved into [core].   But now I notice...

community/tpm2-tss -> libsecret -> pinentry -> gnupg

So there is a base-devel package depending on a [community] package! 
This dependency was added the day of my original email. :)

The tpm2-tss package is co-maintained by Filipe and Jonas.  When moved 
to [core], Filipe will lose access to package it (due to only Developers 
having access to [core]).  So Jonas will become sole maintainer.

@Jonas & @Filipe:  is this change in maintenance an issue?
