yeah. Also - these build servers are sometimes used by other people
to calculate some stuff, and sometimes some of them are slower or
faster than usual. If you see that a build is taking more than 2
minutes (when ccache is expected to be fully applicable), it can be
faster to click "cancel" then "retry" (hoping that it will retry on
another build server from the available ones), because this
particular build server is under high load right now. Micromanaging
them on my side (adding/removing them manually to gitlab runner
config) depending on what stuff is running on each of them does not
make sense. They all work nice. Just randomly some of them are slower
for a couple of hours.

I type this, because right now y6pak is slow, and 15 minutes is
spent on ccached compilation that normally takes 2 minutes.

ouch. That's not good. Tell them to go directly to 20.04 :) They wasted 2 years ;)
