If you don't mind, please give me a list of packages that should not be
available and I will delete them.  I assume you are referring to the
nightly builds repository?

Do you want to push it to tde-packaging GIT or should I?

As the builds are now complete, should I copy the
packages to the main (public) TDE repository?  I assume you are ready to
go with release notes, a news release, etc. after package publication at
