Description (last modified by anarcat)

We (TPA) want to upgrade all Torproject.org machines from Debian
9/stretch ("oldstable") to 10/buster ("stable") by the time the
"oldstable" release becomes end of life (EOL). This is expected to
happen somewhere around july 2020, this summer.

Your team is responsible for these machines relevant for this
transition, which are currently running Debian stretch:

  • colchicifolium
  • corsicum
  • materculae
  • omeiense
  • oo-hetzner-03
  • orestis

Would you please review the changes expected to happen during the
upgrade? You can see a summary of major package changes here:

https://www.debian.org/releases/buster/amd64/release-notes/ch-whats-new.en.html#newdistro

and here:

https://help.torproject.org/tsa/howto/upgrades/buster/#Notable_changes

Let us know if you need an advance notice before we perform the upgrade,
and how long it should be. If you need assistance or coordination, also
do let us know.

Otherwise the upgrade can proceed at any time and will be performed
before summer.

(In this specific case, I'm wondering if there are some boxes that we should decomission. In particular, there seems to be a lot of onionoo boxes in the fleet right now, with more under way (#32268). What's the plan for those? Should we upgrade the older boxes or phase them out when the new cluster is online?)

Thanks!

Having a 24 hour warning for the first three boxes and doing the upgrades while I'm around would be great. The last three boxes will be replaced before they would need to be upgraded. Thanks!

oo-hetzner-03 is being retired (#33911), so that's done! :)
