The end of life of Debian Jessie is approaching in 2020 and we need to move to Debian Buster (or Stretch) before that date.

All instances in the rcm project need to upgrade as soon as possible. Instances not upgraded by 2019-12-31 may be subject to deletion unless prior arrangements for an extended deadline has been approved by the Cloud VPS administration team.

Ping @Freddy2001, @Luke081515

The Cloud Services team would like to have Debian Jessie systems replaced with Debian Buster (or Stretch if necessary) before 2019-12-31. Please do respond of this task with comments if you know you will not be able to meet that target date or have additional questions about what to do or how to do it. Ideally you will create new instances in your Cloud VPS project, test them, and then migrate any final state data to the new instances before deleting the old Jessie instances. If you need more quota space in your project to create new instances in parallel with your existing instances please create a quota request task describing the increase you need and referencing this deprecation task.

@Luke081515 You marked this project as "in use" in the 2019 project purge. Can you provide an estimate of when you or others will be able to address this issue?

Sorry, this got out of my radar. I've backed up the data that was remaing there some time ago already, this was an old vagrant machine I used for testing, so I've deleted it now and will create it new from scratch with stretch when I need this again.
