As previously announced on this list  we are in the process of
replacing the old Ubuntu Trusty instances in Toolforge with fancy new
Debian Stretch instances.
This process is reaching its next major milestone on Monday
2019-03-25. During the general US workday on that date (14:00-00:00
UTC) the Toolforge admin team will be dismantling the legacy Ubuntu
Trusty job grid. Any tools that have not migrated to either the
Stretch grid or the Kubernetes cluster at that point will be forcibly
shutdown. Nothing will be deleted in the tools' $HOME directories, but
any Trusty grid jobs will be stopped. Any crontab file remaining on
old grid's cron server will be archived as
"$HOME/crontab.trusty.save". Maintainers who somehow missed all of the
announcements will be able to login and restart their tools on the
Stretch grid or Kubernetes.
for additional information and tips on common problems that have been
found thus far.
The steps of shutting down the Trusty grid are starting now.
As documented above, the remaining crontab files will be archived to
each tool's $HOME directory to make restoring function for tools which
have not migrated yet easier.
