No More 15.1 Nightly Builds, Any Archived ?

I found a reddit thread recently reporting that the LineageOS project stopped offering 15.1 nightly builds earlier this year (2020); I found one from Feb 2019 archived by Ibuprophen on AndroidFileHost.com that seems to behave well on my old G900T. Surely the *last* official nightly build is archived somewhere, no ? Can anyone here point to an (official) signed nightly build from Feb 2020 for klte ?

Update:
Link to Ibuprophen's archived 15.1 nightly build from 25 Feb 2019: androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=296622

LineageOS 15.1 or 16.0 for S5 klte?

...15.1 nightly builds earlier this year (2020); I found one from Feb 2019 archived by Ibuprophen on AndroidFileHost.com that seems to behave well on my old G900T...
Why not edit your post & include the link for the next user searching for it?

If you don't have enough posts to have the permission to post links don't include the https:// and we will understand.

I saw that you posted in the 14.1 thread also. Why not install 16.0?

My daily driver is a Galaxy S5 G900M LineageOS 16.0 klte build 2020-07-05 (installed 1 year ago & OTA updated via the built-in Updater at least 20 times since then) + Open GApps Pico + LineageOS AddonSU for root & wrote this on XDA for Windows PC users because Odin is so much easier to use compared to Heimdall to flash TWRP: S5 super clean install

It includes links to update modem & bootloader & how to backup the important EFS partition.

I gave the 16.0 nightly 20200719 build a test run on my spare G900T with nano Open GApps recently. With a fresh OEM battery & battery performance profile set to "Efficiency", the best I was getting out of a 100% charge with the device at rest was about 10 hours before battery went to 0%. The same battery in my other 900T running 15.1 nightly from Feb 2019 is getting over 24 hours between charges with light, intermittent usage.

I like the look & feel of 16.0 (even with the Efficiency performance profile); I'd gladly use it if battery life/performance matched what I'm seeing with this 15.1 official nightly from almost 18 months ago.

S5 LineageOS 16.0 Battery Usage

I get -0.1%/hour battery discharge or less @ idle on my daily driver Galaxy S5 G900M LineageOS 16.0 klte build 2020-07-19 + Open GApps Pico + LineageOS AddonSU for root w/ battery profile default: Balanced, apps auto-update disabled in Play Store, sync enabled.

See S5 Remove Animations UI Speedup Test - Taming Google & Apps and also Galaxy S5 LineageOS 16.0 Battery Usage @ Idle for screenshots.
