Hi, Ulrich. Yes, the deadlines are meant to speed up the process as we
have *roughly* 1000+ pkgs which must be converted to py3 or removed
before we can drop the interpreter.

As such, doing this in bulk with delays in between masks helps others
find and fix up these packages if they can stay. Some have ports to Py3,
others simply don't need the bindings, etc.

So, thank you to all who have taken a few minutes to help us keep
packages that can still be supported. Unfortunately, we have a bad ratio
of devs to # of packages.
