We're out of free lunch.  We're glad you enjoyed it while it lasted.

If you want more lunch, you need to join the kitchen.  Here are a few
things we need to keep a host or target supported:

* Competent maintainer(s) to relieve the ones who have maintained this

* CI runners to conserve scarce CI minutes (or the money to buy more)

* Trustworthy system administrator(s) to set them up and keep them
