If your project owns or runs a virtual server (vserver) at,
please read this carefully.

who wish to use infrastructure that we do no support.

As the years have gone by, needs have evolved where we're deploying
vservers of various flavours, and for various purposes other than for
projects, which is time consuming for the webmaster team and is a strain

If you wish to migrate it to GCP, please :
1. Open a bug against Eclipse Foundation > Community > vservers to

If you have any questions or concerns, please file them on the bug.
