We are reaching out to you because you are listed as one of the maintainers of PYWIKIBOT project.
We announced earlier that long term support for Debian Stretch will cease in June, 2022.
We therefore need to shut down all Stretch hosts including Stretch Grid Engine before the end of support date to ensure that Toolforge remains a secure platform.
You should move the PYWIKIBOT project away from Stretch Grid Engine before the deadline
You have two options:
- migrate from Toolforge Stretch Grid Engine to Toolforge Kubernetes.
- migrate from Toolforge Stretch Grid Engine to Toolforge Buster Grid Engine.
You should be aware that our ultimate goal is to deprecate Grid Engine
entirely and replace it with Kubernetes, so we encourage you to move to Kubernetes if you can.
We have also published a series of blogposts explaining further the reasoning behind this action
If you have any peculiar challenges that prevent you from migrating away from Stretch, kindly share this here.
You can also reach out via any of our communication channels
