Silicon: next steps for Genius

Robert Varga

Hello everyone,

as you may be aware, Genius has decided not to participate in Silicon
release as a managed project.

As it currently stands it would be subject to branching and
version-bumping at the Silicon branch and release points.

We do not want that to happen, as would result in genius.git/master to
become eventually unbuildable -- raising a high barrier of entry if
someone were to want give it a try. This has happened to each and every
ex-MSI project. We need and can do better.

What we want to achieve is that as soon as Silicon releases,
genius.git/master will be bumped to Silicon GA artifacts of its
upstreams. That way its build will not get broken once Silicon SNAPSHOT
artifacts expire and will remain buildable for pretty much eternity.

To get to that point, we need to remove Genius from autorelease and
int/dist before the Silicon branch point.

Any objections to doing that this or next week?
