I see that you started filing a lot of RM requests to remove many of
such outdated binaries.
However I need to ask whether you try to understand what was blocking
those builds.  For example, looking at one of the last bugs you opened
to remove outdated binaries of r-cran-luminescence, I see those don't
seem to build just because r-cran-sp is missing a binNMUs against a new
enough r-base, which is something simple to take care of.
