On Tuesday 2017-03-14 (1 week plus 1 day from today), the Labs team
will be shutting down all of the Grid Engine instances which run
Ubuntu Precise [0]. Once the Precise Grid Engine instances are shut
down, any tools or webservices that were running on Precise will need
manual intervention to start back up on the Trusty Grid Engine
instances [1] or migrated to Kubernetes [2].

This shutdown was originally scheduled for today (2017-03-06), but I
have not completed the code changes needed to actually shut things
down yet. My procrastination is your gain if you are a maintainer of
one of the 59 tools that are still using Precise [3].
