Last year, we decided not to support Debian LTS, because every distro
we support comes with a ton of work. Then when Stretch went (non-LTS)
EOL, we deleted the repos.

However, we completely failed to communicate any of this. Sorry about

Our plan:
* reinstate 4.4 (and older, I think) for Stretch soon
* communicate clearly
* most likely not release 4.5 for Stretch
* remove Stretch again somewhere late in 2021

Apologies for the mess.
