   - name: proxy
       haproxy_stats_password: <password>
       mysql_ips: <ip list>

to (values chosen to preserve functionality):

     - name: proxy
           api_username: admin
           api_password: <password>
         cluster_ips: <ip list>

* The galera version was erroneously reported as 25.3.9. It is in fact 25.3.5. We regret the error.
