Changes in thornlist

I have noticed a few changes in the thornlist from Noether release to current development on trunk. I just would like to confirm that the following thorns were supposed to go (r268):

CactusArchive/ADM EinsteinEvolve/LegoExcision

On top of that I noticed that on r269 some thorns were added to be downloaded only but not compiled, however they are still commented out in the thornlist. For example:

!CHECKOUT = CactusElliptic/EllPETSc ... #CactusElliptic/EllPETSc

Wouldn't be better to clean this up before the release?

Thanks, Bruno.

    EllPETSc is disabled by default since it requires PETSc, which is disabled by default. The general consensus seems to be that few people use PETSc, and it is a large package, thus not including it by default is more convenient to many.

    The way EllPETSc is defined is right: It is downloaded unconditionally, but is by default not built.

    And also: yes, ADM and LegoExcision are supposed to be gone. There were some emails about that on the users mailing list, but you seem to be surprised: Do you use any of these?
