I see. Maybe you can offer to help them?

As a release team member i won't look at the github CI

I will look at our official one, but you will look at the github one since for 
you "it's better"

I can see this creating problems, like for example build.kde.org passing and 
githubCI not passing and you getting mad at me because we released something 
that doesn't work.
