That would be something like
https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgitlab.freedesktop.org%2Fmesa%2Fmesa%2F-%2Fmerge_requests%2F4352&data=02%7C01%7Cjfonseca%40vmware.com%7C786cd1eeae684a45dd3a08d7d26766aa%7Cb39138ca3cee4b4aa4d6cd83d9dd62f0%7C0%7C0%7C637209213877300351&sdata=c9OoEsfgpIGhwoewerL%2Fb7ZShTr9CVCtLJdcMPLoUVk%3D&reserved=0 then.

Not quite what I had in mind (I suggested take it off Marge-bot, as opposed to take it off completely.)  But lets continue the conversion in the MR.

For the record I also did make a https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa/-/merge_requests/4348 for reducing the targets as suggested by Marek, which I'd like to get in first.

Not for the last year or so, when it's been part of the pre-merge CI
True.  And while I don't recall asking SCons to be added to pre-merge CI (I certainly did not), I do appreciate the effort and grief this might have caused.  Lets take it out.  As tiring fixing SCons by ourselves might be, is still better than being constantly painted as the bad guys and constantly have to fend off requests to yank off SCons.
