a) we've simply forget to make ath79 source-only right after the 19.07 branch,
   sorry for the confusion or false expectations it might have introduced

b) it was decided some time ago, that 19.07 is last release with ar71xx,
   nothing about ath79 in 19.07

c) it would demand twice the automated builds and the space they take up, as
   well as twice the confusion

d) nobody is going to support both ar71xx and ath79 in 19.07, it's not just
   about images, you need to take support into the account, like bug reports,
   backporting of fixes etc.

e) if you want to use ath79, you should use snapshot images (and expect support) or 
   build 19.07 for ath79 yourself (but don't expect much support)
