Ah, okay, you didn't explicitly mention that in the submitted patches, so I was unsure about their status.

Maybe it makes sense to wait until e.g. 2 weeks after the 19.07.0 release before removing them, as then a lot of people might realize that the targets are missing there.
(Although one might argue that this will only delay their final death.)

However, based on the git log there have not been any target-specific changes for at least two years. So, I'm fine with whatever time you choose.
(We could as well wait for the 20.xx branching and then just move it to targets feed together with old ar71xx.)
