You mean I've requested deletion of ipython-7 as a duplicate of ipython, 
and of python-prompt_toolkit-2 as a duplicate of python-prompt_tolkit

Regardless of the original situation - they are now clear duplicates.

No matter how unimportant or boring they may seem to you, relevant commit 
messages are fundamental for any kind of serious public repository. Using 
such random, facetious commit messages is unacceptable. In any case, that's 
not the main reason for the deletion request.
