  • A new instance is needed to test accessibility of the page previews. This new instance should be in a fixed state and be reliably available given we expect to make use of external testers.
  • Several of the instances are bigger than necessary (readers-web-stephen+readers-web-master). These should be downgraded to small instances retaining the local data and set up of those wikis.

This would free us up with the equivalent of a large instance. Given limited available space, we will need to ensure at least 1 small free machine is free before doing this to avoid taking down any existing services.
  • trending should be moved to a separate resource. It needs to run on (not Given IFTTT code runs on tools-lab, this makes it tricky to identify a sensible home.
