    It hasn't been a year - they were added to feature-removal on May 1st.

    However, not all the relevant people were made aware of that fact.
    Yes, Deepak was copied on that message, but I think he's moved on to
    other things. On the other hand, Lennert (who is listed as IXP2000
    maintainer) is completely unaware of these drivers being marked
    obsolete.
