Sorry to jump the gun. I brought up OBS because someone mentioned PPAs
and I think PPAs in their current form are terrible.

Right now finding new hosting for the mirror seems like the most
important thing. Maybe the LLVM foundation should weigh in here?
Presumably there are funds set aside for something like this? Having
packages for different LLVM versions is incredibly useful and I think
help should be made available to you for hosting should you need it.
