Who is upgrading? There are not historical users of the ZTK, only users of package sets with greater or lesser intersections with the ZTK. > And let's please not turn this around: I'm not putting anything *in*. > Something was *removed*.

You are acting like we have code in the wild which needs to upgrade from some released version of the ZTK to a newer one, and which will thereby break. There is *no* released version: we can't possibly break anybody. People who want to consume the yet-to-be-released ZTK are going to need to make choices about how they include various pacakges which aren't part of it; there is nothing surprising about that at all. You seem to be worried that the removed packages will bitrot because they aren't part of the ZTK: going forward, that may in fact be so, but *only if they aren't being used by people who also track the ZTK*, in which case their removal has harmed no one.
