The old CI will be shutdown as soon as is practicable following the
transition. At this point it represents a significant security risk
due to multiple issues both in Jenkins itself and some of the plugins
we run. These cannot be resolved to limitations in the available
versions of Java for the system which currently hosts the old CI

During earlier discussion it was agreed that for the short remaining
time (less than 2 months at this point essentially) we could go
without CI so I don't see much of an issue here.
