I think that HOL/ex/Sum_of_Powers.thy should be moved to the AFP.

It is a significant result: that the sum of the K-th powers of the first N positive integers is a polynomial in N. Using Bernoulli numbers and Bernoulli polynomials. This should not be hidden away in HOL-ex

It already is in the AFP:
https://www.isa-afp.org/theories/bernoulli/#Bernoulli

If I recall correctly, I took Lukas's theory from HOL-ex, added a lot of
my own stuff, and put it in the AFP (with his permission and with him as
a co-author).

As for why I did not delete the version in HOL-ex, I cannot remember –
perhaps because it still is a small and self-contained derivation of
that result.

I think it should be deleted. It’s confusing to have two copies of the same material, and I even wasted time trying to move the preliminaries out of there; perhaps they should be deleted as well.

No objections in principle, but as always, deleting it may break
existing citations. We could leave it in and replace its content with
just a link to the AFP entry. Or just delete it and not care about
external references. I don't have any strong feelings about this –
perhaps Lukas will comment on this as well.

It doesn't look much more self-contained than
https://www.isa-afp.org/theories/bernoulli/#Bernoulli
Thus I am also in favour of deletiom. The NEWS entry can point to the AFP entry.

Manuel, Larry, please simply delete the duplicate version. I assume
Manuel kept it because the Top 100 theorems list might refer to that
statement in that theory, but if that reference breaks, we can and
should just fix that and not keep this duplicate.
