I believe I asked you about 10 times to keep these branches alive, so
that distributions could work together on a longer support, even without
a CI behind it.

I have also asked for a private gerrit for maintaining the Icehouse
patches after EOL.

While I understand the later means some significant work, I don't
understand why you have deleted the Icehouse branches.

Effectively, under these conditions, I am giving up doing any kind of
coordination between distros for security patches of Icehouse. :(
