So snapshot phase1/images just finished one full build cycle on the new
setup[1] and images should be ready for download and testing.

Currently phase2/packages are being crunched[2] and should should be
available in ~12h or so.

The next steps are roughly following: 

 * prepare the infra for 23.05
 * migrate over 22.03
 * switch to https://buildbot.openwrt.org
 * decomission the old hardware, including the 21.02 build infra

Thank you all involved for your support!
