In our quest to convert the whole cluster to trusty and HHVM, we've got to the imagescalers.
From what I can see from puppet/the current image scalers is that we have the following packages custom-built at the moment:
- ffmpeg2theora (disabled libav multithreading)
- librsvg (external resources loading protection)
- libvips31 (backport)
- libvpx1 (backport)
We also need to evaluate the performance of HHVM under the peculiar imagescalers load, which is probably going to be non-optimal.
Finally, testing should be very accurate to assess any rendering differences on trusty vs precise.
