So the archive is still growing and we'll need to clean it up again
soonish. Where do you have the archive.org uploader and is it in a state
where we (devops team) can also easily use it? If not, could you help us
getting it to that point?

We also have an archive cleanup script here[1]. Maybe the uploader can
be integrated there? I don't know how complicated it is.
