Which also brings up another point: right now we're running it on
Ubuntu Xenial (16.04 LTS) which is scheduled to reach EOL early next
year, and the tooling we're using to deploy it isn't going to work
on newer Ubuntu releases. Even keeping it up in a read-only state is
timebound to how long we can safely keep its server online. If we
switch ask.openstack.org to read-only now, I would still plan to
turn it off entirely on or before April 1, 2021.
