@MarcoAurelio thanks for the heads up!. We will make sure we have no schema maintenance scheduled for when you decide to run it. Ping any of us on IRC before you go ahead, so we can keep an eye on the DBs.

Same recommendations apply than T167031#3315249 plus the additional of not making both at the same time.

I have time to do it now if it is a good moment @jcrespo / @Marostegui.

Sorry @MarcoAurelio that was almost 10:30pm our time :-(
