Hi Tor,

Here's what February looked like to the sysadmin team.

# What's been done

- We have hired anarcat!

- Experimenting with full disk encryption of VM's.

- GitLab VM setup (re: #29402).

- Migration of the CiviCRM systems to new VM's with a recent OS.

- Experimenting with Prometheus for trend analysis (re: #29681).

- The ordinary resolving of requests and bug reports, as can be
  followed better over at [tickets].

# Upcoming new things

- Getting anarcat up and running.

- Trying out NextCloud for some set of Tor people, as a replacement
  for SVN, Sandstorm and possibly more (re: #29415).

# Fact of the month

Our backup server holds system backups for 77 hosts. Currently there
are 338 full backups and 11886 incremental backups consuming 13 TB.
Apart from system backups, we have PostgreSQL backups for five hosts,
eating another 280 GB.
