That window was a bit off, but the mass-rebuild of system/ has finished.
 All architectures passed, and GCC 8 is now live in system/!

We have also merged changes from Luis (aranea) that change all URLs to
HTTPS where possible. Additionally, all packages are now being built
with abuild 3.3.1+adelie, which means checkroot is now off by default.

Now that these changes have merged, we are now going back to regular
development mode. The MR queue is a bit full - 8 unmerged in the last
10 days. Therefore, work will focus on that for today (Friday).

Monday will begin our Firefox Quantum push in earnest. Help is also
welcome for the arch kernel configurations; if you would like to take an
arch, please feel free to reach out on IRC. I've already taken ppc and
ppc64; djt has taken x86_64 and pmmx/i586.
