 Hi Regina,

 The many mapserver.org services running off of the old adhoc server have
 finally out-grown the architecture there.  Recent GDAL/PROJ and even
 !MapServer demand a more updated compiler (adhoc runs Debian Wheezy and
 gcc 4.7.2).  I've pushed that old server to its limits, but it's finally
 time to upgrade.

 I've always been very good to record any changes and maintenance at

 I request on behalf of the !MapServer project for a new dedicated VM to
 host all of the heavily used mapserver.org services.  Some more notes:
  - this would be similar I guess to pycsw's recent VM (#2452)
  - it will honestly take me much effort to move all of the services to
 this new VM, so I propose that we keep both the adhoc and the new VM up
 during, and I will record my progress on a new wiki page (linked of course
 from https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/SAC_Service_Status )
  - if you ask my preference, I am much friendly to Ubuntu 18.04 , but can
 work in any environment that you provide me.
  - proposed VM name could be 'mapserver'

 Let me know what you think.  And thank you for this.

 (marking ticket as 'major' as with the recent MS 7.6.0 release done now,
 I'd like to get moving on upgrading all services, and especially since our
 'msautotest' scripts will be testing now against old Adhoc MS 7.4.4 for

 mercy buckets! :)
