We really should get rid of standalone talos.  There are so many
differences with it and --develop should account for all the
differences that we care about.  Talos now has a better installation
story and the remaining issues with installation have largely been
ticketed and can be dealt with.

https://wiki.mozilla.org/StandaloneTalos is also largely outdated and
should be eliminated along with this (or at least note as deprecated).

other teams like the networking team use standalone talos.  Just need to keep in mind that others depend on this while phasing it out.
With the landing of https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=725414 , is there any reason to not get rid of standalone?  Are there people on the other teams we should reach out to?

Definitely post to dev.platform about this.

So the question is, what is actionable here?  The appropriate wiki has already been marked as deprecated

Are there any repos to remove?  How does one actually get standalone talos? Can we put a redirect there that points people to use talos --develop? If we can do that, I think we should do it, and then mark this as fixed.

I've updated all the documentation I can find.  Should we close this? Is there anything actionable to do?
+1 for closing
Closing.  If there are pages that refer to standalone Talos, we can mark as deprecated and point to https://wiki.mozilla.org/Buildbot/Talos which gives instructions and note the deprecation. AFAIK, there aren't any repos to be closed.
