Not an objection, but the low usage may be due to the use of tarball
repo snapshots being disabled in kdesrc-build for a few months now.

Of course, kdesrc-build was using the snapshots by default out of an
effort to be gentler to KDE source code repositories, so if it's easier
for you all to forgo the snapshots entirely then I'm fully supportive.
