Could you wait more than 4 days between the patch submission and
effectively pushing it?

Well, you updated mongodb from 3.4.10 to 3.4.24 on the March 10th,
submitted a patch series for the removal on the March 12th and pushed on
the March 16th.  In the meantime, the update has been reverted on the
March 11th because of license issue, IIUC.

If the removal for security reasons had been discussed on IRC, it could
be nice to point the discussion here.  Otherwise, open a discussion on
the topic on guix-devel or bug-guix.  The full removal is a radical
solution (especially, it should be done with 2 commits: service+doc and
then package; well another story).

All the best,
