What risk? Where can I read about that? Dennis has not replied to my
public mail either.

Currently, repoview is the only package that requires python-kid on that
machine. Who decides on what packages from that mysterious private repo
are "supported" on that machine or not? Seth?

That "team" has never before said anything about it. The API is needed as
the backend for the Extras multilib resolver, Extras repoclosure, ... and
some other tools. But maybe you misunderstand.

Perhaps I should drop the ball at this point and declare the code
unsupported, too. As I said before, this is turning into a negative
experience for me.
