    - no-fixup-or-squash.sh     to replace VREF/fixupsquash/
    - no-unannotated-tags.sh    to replace VREF/OBJTYPE/commit/refs/tags/.*
  - Moved some repositories from gitolite to github.openssl.org
** Automation
  - Set up an automation buildbot to take over tasks that were done
    with post-receive hooks in gitolite or cron jobs:
    - make local mirrors of all github repos of interest
    - make select local mirrors available through git://git.openssl.org/
      and https://git.openssl.org/
    - mirror push selected repositories to github.
    - create snapshots (for https://ftp.openssl.org/snapshot/)
    - generate OpenSSL's web pages
    - generate OpenSSL's blog pages
** System configuration
