I discussed this with Boris on IRC yesterday. When I volunteered to
write a DB purger at Summit, I wasn't aware that there was already one
actively in progress. (So many patches around the end of Havana.) When
I went to file a blueprint and noticed the existing db-purge blueprint,
I saw that its patch had been -2'd and figured it was dead. But as long
as Boris is working to actively improve that patch (he's on vacation now
but said he'd probably have something on Monday), I won't submit a patch
for the competing blueprint. Instead, I'll work to make sure Boris's
code meets everyone's requirements (some that I got from Joe Gordon and
Phil Day are mentioned in db-purge2), and when it does I'll withdraw the
db-purge2 blueprint and retarget remove-db-archiving to depend on
Boris's blueprint instead.
