[IMPORTANT] Reminder - EOL for Legacy DEA Backend on May 22, 2017

Dieu Cao <dcao@...>

Hello All,

I'm excited to send this email as a reminder that EOL for the Legacy DEA
Backend is May 22, 2017, just over a month away, finally closing out a
great chapter for Cloud Foundry.

You can find the previous notice of this here [1] and here [2].

Documentation on how to migrate to Diego can be found here [3].

The EOL phase for the DEAs out will entail:
(1) moving the DEAs to the Cloud Foundry Attic (meaning the DEAs will no
longer be supported, no longer be patched for any reason, and no longer
accept any contributions),

(2) removing distribution of the DEAs from cf-release,

(3) shutting down all CI pipelines related to the DEAs,

(4) removing all code paths and technical debt in the Cloud Controller
associated with running Cloud Foundry on multiple backends.

Additionally, the Runtime OG team's support efforts have not required much
in the last several months, and the team is standing down for now.
