Delete tb-crashes role

The tb-crashes role was created in #22923 for creating a pair of (mini-breakpad) servers where crash reports would be sent and viewed. That server was decommissioned in #31095. Although #23624 is still open, and this would be a really nice improvement, I don't see us getting back to this in the near future.

I think we should delete the tb-crashes role for now, and we can recreate it in the future if/when we get back to this.

tjr, considering you spent the most time on this project, does this seem okay to you? If you think we should keep the role, then we can close the ticket.

(We can assign this ticket to TPA when it's actionable for them).

Putting it on the roadmap, so I don't forget.

Okay, tom says we should delete it. (Also CCing tom's actual username).

Dear sysadmins, we believe there isn't a need for the tb-crashes role now. Can you confirm this is true (nothing else is relying on that role)? Please deleted it if it's not being used anywhere else.

we are usually wary of removing users, because that might leave un-owned files on the servers. are you sure the role doesn't own anything anywhere?

actually, the role is not defined anywhere, so if they exist, those files are already unowned.
