Due to no funding for the past 9 months, and nothing in the foreseeable
future, and the essential conclusion of phase I of the make-wifi fast
project, I am going to be shutting down a few underused servers and
other infrastructure.

The lede build server (650/month) will be shut down at the end of the
month if not earlier.

flent-bbr, flent-tokoyo, flent-dallas, flent-atlanta, flent-newark,
flent-de will be shut down shortly. (I will try to upgrade kernels
on the machines remaining to also support BBR)

I will look for files on them that need to get moved first.

There are a pair of other servers in newark that I no longer have idea
what they do, also planned to go.

flent-fremont might get retired for a newer more capable box.

flent-london, lists/www.bufferbloat.net and www.cerowrt.org will remain
up, but might end up all merged into one.

I am not responsible for the upkeep of the two other flent servers in
the pool, but I've lost track of which ones are which, mapped to
netperf-west, east, and so on, I'll figure out which of those are which
at some point.

netperf-eu is toke's server... can't remember what rich's server is
mapped to. But we'll end up with netperf-west being a machine
in fremont, and no coverage of the central US.

If anyone is actually using the servers I plan to retire for anything,
(more than a few here have accounts) please let me know soon.
