I've done this now, the removed repositories have been archived at
/git/pkg-multimedia/attic/$repo.git.tar.gz, and can be restored at any

I have hoped that ¹ will make the broken repositories disappear

hope that will clear up by itself after the weekend, otherwise we need
to contact ansgar, the PET maintainer
