[Ci-users] Missing recent builds

I see, thanks a lot for the explanation!

I guess the issue here is that in systemd we usually generate several 
dozens of builds per day, so leaving just last 20 cuts into the 'recent
history'. However, I absolutely get the space issue, so I'll reconfigure
all jobs to keep the artifacts for 30 days, and the jobs themselves for
60 days (and they shouldn't take much space and would help us to reschedule
them if they're needed again).

Anyway, if the need arises and a cleanup is necessary, could you remove
just the artifacts? It would leave us with the option of being able to
easily reschedule the job (as doing that manually is next to impossible
due to sheer amount of variables the GitHub plugin sets).
