> Thoughts?

I'd like to give releases on this installation a lifetime of 6 months,
and packages an idle-lifetime of 6 months.

IOW, releases are deleted from that site automatically after 6 months,
and packages that don't have a releases within 6 months get also deleted.

This could still cause issues if somebody decides they want to "test"
releasing Django (say), so it may be necessary to also share packages
and roles.

This, in turn, may mean that we can just have a single database, and
give releases a "dev" flag, meaning that some are displayed only on
dev.pypi, and the others only on pypi. Uploading to dev would show
set the dev flag.
