Rstudio has an interest in system users existing that make it difficult to
upgrade in PAWS, which doesn't have the same ideas about system users.
Currently the single user container is blocked from being upgraded by
Rstudio. There are some more Rstudio specific details in
One simple solution would be to remove Rstudio. At the moment there is not
a clear path forward for keeping it as a part of PAWS.
Are there any opinions on this approach?

WMCS will be migrating the remaining Toolforge tools running on Stretch
grid to Buster grid tomorrow(2nd June, 2022).
This has become necessary as the deadline for long term support(including
security updates) for Stretch comes to an end this month(June 2022).
=== What Do I Have To Do ===
Unless your tool starts failing on Buster grid, you don't have to do
If your tool can only work on Stretch grid, you can temporarily move it
back to Stretch grid with the following commands(while you work to port it
to Buster grid or kubernetes)
Stop and Start the tool with *-release=stretch* flag
Example: *webservice stop*; *webservice start -release=stretch*
Add *-release=stretch* to jsub command
Example: *jsub -release=stretch ...*
