I'm subbed on systems, no need to cc.

I'm not really the backend guy to do this, I'd be more comfortable with
Gonzalo Rafael or Aleksey (or really any systems people) doing the VM
reboot.  I'd say pick a time, drop a quick note to the L10n list warning of
downtime and do it.  AFAIK we've got a cron job that kicks off between
midnight and 1:00 a.m. (Boston time), so other than not mangling that, any
time works.
