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 hat-imagescalers 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 @thcipriani, @jijiki, @Joe

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.

The project SAL says: 2019-12-04 03:10 <andrewbogott> shutting down VMs as the project is unclaimed

There are running instances however.

@bd808 Thank you very much for the ping, I can deal with destroying the jessie instances next week, would that work?

Yes, any time before the end of the calendar year would be acceptable. And thank you. :)

This project was supposed to be orphaned and removed in the last purge by Andrew. Please remove it completely at your earliest convenience.
