We've (slowly) trying to track down a UX branch tpaint regression over in bug 889758, which is blocking us from landing Australis in nightly.

I'd like to get access to a couple of Talos XP boxes so we can iterate faster on trying to profile/benchmark and test potential fixes.

(Remote access is fine, I assume they'll be behind the new Mozilla-MPT VPN?)

Once the dep bugs are resolved you will be able to get to the machines. Please assign this bug to nobody when you are done with the loaners.

Regarding bug 896624 -- does everyone who want to access these machines need explicit access? There are ~5 others who would be doing the actual work.
Flags: needinfo?(rail)
Yes, it's tied to LDAP.
:dolske, yes, you will need to explicitly file bugs like bug 896624 for each person. An "ack" from releng may be required.

Machines available and extra users added to VPN (bug 898632).

 - credentials given to :dolske on irc (but un-acknowledged) If folks need credentials contact a team member in #releng

 - folks may need to disconnect/reconnect MozillaVPN to access machines. If you don't have connectivity after that, please reopen bug 898632.

Please assign this bug to nobody when you are done with the loaners.

I think we might be done with these now (or very soon)? Over to mconley to conform or release to releng when we actually are done.

I think we should wait for the TART regression data to come in, and to get a clear idea of what platforms we regress on (and care about regressing on). I'd hate to release these machines only to find that we need them again to clear up TART.

We'll likely know early next week whether or not we need these machines.

We do indeed need these Windows XP test machines still.

PSA: Please don't login to t-xp32-ix-005 for the next two days without talking to me first as I'm running talos jobs on nightlies from the last few months. Thanks.
Do we still need these two machines? Fine if so.

Yes, I think we're done with the XP boxes.

I've backed up the tools Matt and I developed on those boxes, so you're good to go to re-image them.

Thanks so much!
You're welcome.
