- fibre cut took out the entirety of @AdelieLinux infra.

- some bugzilla guy blew me off for asking if they’d start putting release tarballs back on Moz infra instead of relying on unreproduceable GitHub commit tarballs.

- KDE released Applications 19.04, bringing our freshness rating on repology down 15%.
