19.07.4 / new 4/32 devices in ath79, download links missing

From https://openwrt.org/releases/19.07/notes-19.07.4#device_support :

Backported support for several 4/32 devices in ath79: TP-Link TL-WR802N v1/v2, TL-WR940N v3/v4/v6, TL-WR941ND v6, TL-MR3420 v2, TL-WA701ND v1, TL-WA730RE v1, TL-WA830RE v1, TL-WA801ND v1/v3/v4, TL-WA901ND v1/v4/v5

Since I could not find any 19.07.4 images for those devices, they are currently stuck at 18.06.8 (or even lower).

We have two options now:

  1. Update to 19.07.4 and remove the 18.06.8 download links (leaving effectively no downloadable image at all in the ToH for those devices); add note to dataentries that 19.07 image needs to be built by the users themselves
  2. Leave them as-is, i.e. at 18.06.8 and ar71xx, for the sake of having a downloadable image

What's your opinion, what OpenWrt support status should we shown in the ToH for those devices?

Leave it as is

Is this related to the 'fix' of disabling all builds for 4/32 devices on 19.x?
