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 wikidata-federation 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.

Remaining Debian Jessie instances (live report):

@Cparle @matthiasmullie @egardner I don't believe we use this on our side.
Do you use it ? :)

We have been using it in the past - unsure if we plan to use it anymore - let me ask around

federated-commons and federated-wikidata can be probably removed.
There's one more instance on there that is still being used (not on Jessie, though): sdc-test-runner - this one should stay.

Just pinging @Cparle to make sure he's no longer using these instances for anything anymore either.

@Cparle also no longer needs them.
I suspect no-one else needs these anymore, but speak up if you do! I'll wait another week before removing them.
