Drop ESM releases from update-germinate

We run germinate across all supported series and flavors so that the
unpacked output can be an aid for development. But trusty and xenial only
receive updates via the ESM archive, barring exceptional SRUs needed in
order for users to *access* the ESM archive; and in no case should we be
making changes to seeds or package dependencies in the main archive for ESM
series. So there's not really value in providing germinate output once a
release is in ESM, and Ubuntu is the only flavor that has ESM support, and
the germinate output takes up a LOT of space and takes a long time to

Don't move the new germinate-output dir over, but diff and patch

The germinate-output dir is 56GiB and the contents almost never change BUT
because we're rsyncing to a separate VM for a web frontend, this is a lot of
churn every 6 hours. Patching in place ensures that timestamps don't change
on files that haven't changed, so there's much less that should need to be

Don't pass -Gdpi=55 to dot for svg generation.

This argument was part of the initial commit of svg support and there's no
real explanation why we're overriding this argument. This worked fine on
xenial, but on focal and later it results in truncated output (the bottom of
the image is cut off). Just drop the argument.

Unset http_proxy before calling bzr.

focal bzr+urllib break when http_proxy is present in the environment. So
just unset it.

Use /usr/bin/env instead of specifying /usr/bin/python

While we're still in the process of migrating from snakefruit (xenial) to
ubuntu-archive-toolkit (focal), this lets us hack around python2 vs python3
by using a local 'python->python3' symlink on path.

Append to the python path when invoking extra-germinate, don't replace it.

Unset http_proxy before calling bzr

For anything we are accessing via bzr, the proxy is not needed either on
snakefruit or on ubuntu-archive-toolbox; and the bzr+urllib in focal doesn't
work if it's set.

git.launchpad.net, not code.launchpad.net

Stop running run-apt-mirror-snapshot.

Per discussions on #ubuntu-release on 2023-01-08/2023-01-09/2023-01-17, this
is no longer used/useful. It's also broken in that the code syncs dists/
from the Ubuntu archive and then deletes it again. So this is a lot of
churn for a broken git repository.

The name of the cinnamon flavor is ubuntucinnamon, not ubuntu-cinnamon.
