We may either keep one simple webserver running and
point the old domain
there in order to maintain redirects of the old URLs to the new scripts.
We could also move this late to another server, eg. of Wikimedia CH
which I could provide, so we can decomission the toolserver completely
and save costs and management time while still maintain the redirects.
I'm currently working on puppetizing tools-webproxy and the
redirect server is just a few extra lines of configuration.
So no servers outside of Labs are needed.
What would be interesting is a mail forwarder for the exist-
addresses as a) WMF may be hesitant to
provide this and b) mails with the senders' assumption on
them being forwarded in Amsterdam instead being relayed in
the US could be the source for endless drama.
