From discussions in irc and in dev.planning, looks like we are ok to stop the FF2.0 talos machines, as they are no longer being used by dev or rel-drivers.
The list of machines to be powered off are:
    qm-mini-ubuntu04
    qm-mini-vista04
    qm-mini-xp04
    qm-plinux-fast02
    qm-pmac-fast02
    qm-pmac04
    qm-pxp-fast02

We'll leave these powered off for a few days, Then do full backup/images in case we need to revive them. Then reformat and recycle these machines for use elsewhere.

This will reduce our support load, and also simplify code changes for talos for FF3.0/FF3.next, so its all good.
And machines won't be turned off until bug 463323 is fixed (as discussed in dev-planning), correct?

Yep, exactly. Hence bug#463323 is a blocker.

I've now removed all 7 from waterfall on http://tinderbox.mozilla.org/showbuilds.cgi?tree=Mozilla1.8
Confirmed nagios is not monitoring these 7 machines.
Now powered off:
 qm-mini-ubuntu04
 qm-mini-vista04
 qm-mini-xp04
 qm-plinux-fast02
 qm-pmac-fast02
 qm-pmac04
 qm-pxp-fast02

Powering down seemed safest way to confirm there were no mystery long-forgotten-about oh-so-critical process running in the background somewhere. If anyone *needs* these back online, despite the advance warnings, you've a few days before we reimage and recycle the machines elsewhere.
Over to alice, for talos master.cfg changes.
