These are now done, and all the migrations appear to have completed

I did not do anything about these repositories on Alioth, which I think
were part of an experiment with submodules some years ago:

- preview/packages/linux
- preview/source/linux
- source/linux

I have enabled the email hook, sending via tracker.debian.org.

I have enabled the KGB webhook.

Hopefully not.

There are some files served from <https://kernel.alioth.debian.org/>
but I don't think any of them need to be preserved.
