  • Debian-specific changes:
    • Adopt to new “offline nodes” syntax. []
    • Fix a bug where offline nodes were not recognised as such. []
    • Limit unrep_with_dbd_issues() to Debian architectures for now. []
  • Misc/generic changes:
    • Don’t use existing hosts as example. []
    • Add link to database schema. (Thanks for Bernhard M. Wiedemann for pointing out that was missing.) []
    • Thank the OSU Open Source Lab from Oregon State University (OSUOSL) for hosting the new amd64 nodes [] as well as add the new nodes themselves [][], perform the various networking configuration [] and other various tweaks [].
