Most of the arches are probably restored by now.

So, we've been having some mash memory issues lately, and have had some
trouble composing the f7-updates repo.  The mash/createrepo processes
would either get killed or bodhi would not update generate the
updateinfo or update the f7-updates symlink properly.

This morning I saw that last night's mash had completed successfully, so I
updated the f7-updates symlink -- just as bodhi was running its weekly
repo-cleaner that removes all of the repos that aren't being pointed to.
Which also seemed to occur right when our latest repo was syncing live.
Very unfortunate timing.

I'm going to write some extensive sanity checks into bodhi's masher to
ensure that this does not occur again.  We should also increase our data
retention to a little bit longer than an hour :(
