Power Outage in Nuernberg Office

September 2nd, 2009 by

From Sep 12 to Sep 13 we will have a power outage in the Nuernberg office.

Downtime is planned from 2009-09-11 20:00 CEST (18:00 UTC) until 2009-09-14 10:00 CEST (08:00 UTC). So it might become a long weekend especially for developers – but we plan to avoid restrictions for endusers during this downtime.

So far, the following services are affected by this downtime:

  • Build Service
  • Mailing lists
  • …and more

Please have a look at the “downtime” wiki page to see the full list of affected hosts.

Not affected:

  • news.opensuse.org
  • <lang>.opensuse.org (all opensuse wikis)
  • forums.opensuse.org
  • irc.freenode.net/opensuse* channels
  • bugzilla.novell.com
  • download.opensuse.org (replacement host in place)
  • static.opensuse.org (replacement host in place)
  • software.opensuse.org (search will not work as the buildservice is down)

We plan no replacement for the other services as the downtime is not too large.

We will try to reduce/disable building on build.opensuse.org on Thursday, so all mirrors should have “up-to date” packages over the weekend.

With kind regards,
Lars (on behalf of the openSUSE-Admins)
