TPA-RFC-20: plan a bunch of bullseye upgrades
in a recent bullseye upgrade (#40654 (closed)), I found the upgrade took 40 minutes. i have therefore reasons that, in a work party, we could probably upgrade a significant chunk of our fleet.
so the task here is to:
look at our inventory, and figure out which servers should be fairly easy to upgrade in batches
create an issue per machine to be upgraded?we created issues for batches (#40690 (closed), #40692 (closed), and other related tickets here)
then schedule a work party to massively upgrade those, all at once
send an announcement to affected parties that their servers will be upgraded (TPA-RFC-20 sent to tor-project and forum
do the actual upgradesee related tickets for progress
part of this work is to consider whether it's worth writing a batch script (fabric? shell? mitogen prototype?) to do parts of the upgrade...
