It seems that we need a backup plan. In my case, I could put the tree
for -next at infradead or at linuxtv, but that means to re-configure
everything at Stephen's side.

Does anyone have an ETA for hera to come back to live? If they're
planning to recover it into one or two days, then it is probably better
to wait. Otherwise, I think it would be wiser to move the repo to
some other place while they're preparing a new infrastructure.

In any case, I'll just do a push -f after hera return, and do a
git repack -A -d on my repository there, to remove any bad object
that might be inserted by someone's else.
