Orphan Request Submitted,

  Since 5.2 did continue to provide functionality that was not yet mature in
the rewite that are the 6.0/6.1 branches, an immediate deletion isn't
warranted as the package used with LTS may well provide a seamless bridge
while bugs are resolved against the 6.0/6.1 branches for some users. The
entire 6.0/6.1 platform is barely 7 months old at this point.
