There was a discussion of this issue on the libraries list in June/July,
resulting in an agreed policy being added to the hackage upload page,

	If a package is being maintained, any release not approved and
	supported by the maintainer should use a different package name.

I am also willing to remove any release with an unchanged name and
made without the support of the maintainer.  You have made clear that
the DrIFT-2.2.3 upload is in that category, so I have now removed it.
Looking through, the only other package I spotted that might be such
is HsASA-0.1 -- please let me know about this one, and any others
I've missed.
