ACTION REQUIRED - Gitlab and Subversion server migration

Good morning KDE Developers,

As many of you will be aware, today Gitlab and our Subversion repository
were both migrated to a new home - on a more modern and more powerful
server, which should better support future work.

As a consequence the host key of the server has now changed, which means
you will need to take steps on your system otherwise you won't be allowed
to connect to the new server.

Please ensure you run the following two commands to clear out any existing
host keys:
- ssh-keygen -R -f ~/.ssh/known_hosts
- ssh-keygen -R ~/.ssh/known_hosts

Following these commands the next time you try to connect you will be
prompted to confirm the new host key and trust it for use. For those who
would like to confirm that host key, it is as follows:

256 SHA256:zHdK2R/S6s5Oj71N0s8LHWCXXsUt+DCztd+GjzW9KlU root at lerwini
256 SHA256:ZNBg4AkRxbt/N6xzpt7GbmmS78A3WFy5lz0l/cPHbcE root at lerwini (ECDSA)
3072 SHA256:KxAoV6VsbKvAocFZCJlxtmPDScmUCRNiUiOCSXNSC/k root at lerwini (RSA)

Please let us know, via either sysadmin at or kde-devel at if you
encounter any issues with the new system.

Many thanks,
Ben Cooksley
KDE Sysadmin
