Description

5 years ago
BYOB[1] was shut down last year, but the hardware that supported it is still online, doing nothing but a static page[2].
In order to decommission the hardware, we need to have byob.mozilla.com and buildyourownbrowser.com setup on the static cluster.

Right now, it runs on byob-app1.dmz.scl3.mozilla.com. Credentials are in the sysadmins gpg file, line 686.

TIA!

since the static page just provides a link to check out http://kev.deadsquid.com/?p=1219, maybe we should just do a 302 for requests to it through the static cluster?

14:23 < dumitru> I was thinking at it
14:23 < dumitru> what if that blog post goes down or is taken offline?
14:23 < dumitru> we might still want to have our own message
14:23 < cturra> that also crossed my mind
14:23 < dumitru> and point the page to the blog post if someone wants to read more
14:23 < cturra> but the message just says: go here
14:23 < cturra> a manual 302  ;)
14:24 < dumitru> it says that is decommissioned
14:24 < dumitru> like, it offers an explanation
14:24 < dumitru> instead of a dead page
14:24 < cturra> i wonder if we have some blog.mo page we can redirect this to
14:25 < dumitru> mmmm
14:25 < dumitru> search doesn't reveal anything

There is a /website-archive/ blog where we should have blog posts about decommissioned sites. If there's not a post already, someone could make one.

CC'ing Chris More... I don't know who runs this, but he seems like a reasonable guess. :)
