There are still dozens of VMs in cloud-vps running Debian Stretch. All

Don't hesitate to reach out for help on IRC or mailing list if you need

start with a fresh host and transfer workloads over.

Here is the remaining deprecation timeline:
May 1, 2022: All active Stretch VMs will be shut down (but not deleted)
by WMCS admins.
June 30, 2022: LTS support for Debian Stretch ends, all Stretch VMs will
be deleted by WMCS admins
