Per the development guidelines, the only targets
are Debian "stable", Fedora "current" and "current-1",
and Ubuntu "current" and "LTS" (which does not
technically include 22.04, let alone 20.04, if one
uses the term "LTS" as meaning the latest)

At this point, removing the buildbot worker for 20.04
makes sense to me (as the person "shepherding"
the 20.04 worker, shutting it down would not be
considered a large burden (`shutdown -h now`,
and along with "virsh autostart .... --disable")).
Let me know if you agree, or wish to continue it
for fixes/34 and fixes/33 only (clearly master
no longer applies, and the worker for master
should be removed).
