Remove support for Debian Jessie prior to upstream End Of Life for release
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

On June 30, 2020 the Debian project will stop providing security patch support for the Debian 8 "Jessie" release. The Cloud Services and SRE teams at the Wikimedia Foundation would like to have all usage of Debian Jessie in our managed networks replaced with newer versions of Debian's operating system on or ideally well before that date.

In the Cloud VPS environment, this removal requires the cooperation and participation of Cloud VPS project maintainers.

Based on lsb_release -c, 212 of our 809 instances are running jessie (possibly missing one depending on the distro in use in T232676 - looks like that host was not reconfigured for the new cumin master). So about 26.21%.

Are we going to re-create https://tools.wmflabs.org/trusty-deprecation/ for jessie?
