Right now Discovery's dashboards (source) and Discovery's experimental dashboards (source) live as apps served by Shiny Server running inside a MediaWiki Vagrant container running inside a Labs instance. This was necessary when the dashboards were originally prototyped, but as they've grown (new features, computationally expensive procedures, more datasets) they've also become rather sluggish. Which makes sense because they're running underneath like 2-3 different layers of virtual abstraction.
A side effect of this is that the OS & the libraries running in instance and the OS & libraries running in the container are not automatically updated. The goal of this task is to finally start managing the dashboards via Ops' Puppet configs.
