Subject: [Bioc-devel] Package name

The Package Guidelines for Developers and Reviewers say that:

A package name should be descriptive and should not already exist as a current package (case-insensitive) in Bioconductor nor CRAN.

The sentences says current packages - does that imply that names of packages that have been archived (on CRAN) or deprecated (on Bioconductor) are available? This is likely to lead to serious confusion.
