[Pharo-users] Pillar for 30 gone the way of the dodo on the CI

well… I’m with Marcus here: the real problem is that we shouldn’t use the CI as a repository for download images. 
Instead, I would keep them in a public file server (pretty much the same we do with Pharo, we do not keep all builds (or versions) in the CI, but all history is available at files.pharo.org. 
And we cannot keep this indefinitely because of many reasons (and the fact that INRIA servers are not infinite is one important).

So, maybe we should make community available some files.pharo.org/contribution where jobs can upload the built versions (not the full history, but at least stable and development versions?
that way people can still  find their versions and we can reduce a bit the weight of pharo-contribution?

cheers, 
Esteban
