Bugfix/artifacts too large

Michelle Weidling requested to merge bugfix/artifacts-too-large into develop

Bug fix


The artificats stored in the blob we use for building the pages were too big for GitLab to handle. Therefore we introduced a mechanism that deletes artifacts that are older than 14 days.

We also tried to implement a mechanism that removes artifacts of already deleted branches, but since that removed all branch related artifacts, these code passages have been commented out and left there for further inspection as soon as there are deprecated artifacts of branches available again.

Another idea would be to delete commit related artifacts that are older than 1 week. Please let me know in the comment below if this seems useful for you.
