excellent.  btw, 96k debug logs sent to the list, geeennnerally we
don't do that, using e.g. pastebin somewhere and sending the link,
instead.  otherwise the server quickly runs out of disk space.

jacob does have one up and running on a machine behind the VPN connection.

i've never looked at these gitlab-ci things before.  i'm curious as to
why the dev-env-setup scripts are not used?

this would avoid huge duplication of commands and also ensure that the
dev-env-setup scripts themselves were tested.
