It's just the normal process. The fact that F37 and F38 branches exist
doesn't change anything. (Packages can't be retired in already-released
versions, so that's why F37 and F38 branches still exist.)

No, the process does not work like that in practice.
I tried to unretire a few retired rust packages before the 2 month deadline passed where re-review is not needed, but Fabio Valentini told me that I cannot do that because he is still maintaining them for the f36 and f37 branches (it was several months ago). Releng agreed and refused to unretire the packages.
I may have overreacted in the ticket but in my opinion this is an incredibly antisocial process where one person has the power to permanently retire something and then refuse to bring it back.
I needed it for packaging fractal where as a result of being able to unretire them I had to bundle all dependencies. Same person tried to stop that as well...
(I am no longer interested in bringing the rust dependencies back. Bundling works much better. Thank you very much.)
