[Labs-announce] Tool Labs NFS space conservation (round 3)

This is now done.

File were truncated instead of removed.  This should buy us some time.

Additionally, we have a relic archive from the old toolserver user home
directories. It appears to have been created 2014-06-05 and uploaded on

52G    toolserver-home-archive/archive-2014-06-05.tar.xz

When this file reaches two years old I am proposing we remove it.  The data
is stale, and to the best of my knowledge there has never been a request
concerning recovery of files in (at least) the last year.  This file has
read permission for all users if anyone wants to make their own copy before
that time.  T136202 has more details.

Thanks for your patience,

Chase Pettet
