Awesome, thank you all.

> A few weeks ago we made the decision to temporarily put aside the attempt to completely restore the old historical data and instead stand up a new, empty database so that we could get the full featureset online.  So, for now there is no access to old tests run prior to the service’s move to OARC, however new tests will be available for review.

Excuse my not remembering, but have y'all confirmed that this is
really worth the faff? What *I* care about is being able to use the
service *from now on*- going back and seeing the breakage of
foo.example.net in 2018 is only mildly interesting, but certainly not
(to me!) worth your time and effort...

I don't think the execution is relevant when it was obviously a bad
idea in the first place.
This is like putting rabid weasels in your pants, and later expressing
regret at having chosen those particular rabid weasels and that pair
of pants.
