Launchpad read-only 09.00 UTC 10th of March 2011

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

Unfortunately, we have to move this week’s Launchpad database update. The previously announced service interruption due on Wednesday the 9th of March will now take place on Thursday the 10th of March.

Launchpad’s web interface will be read-only, with other aspects offline, for around 90 minutes from 09.00 UTC on the 10th of March 2011.

Starts: 09.00 UTC 10th March 2011
Expected back by: 10.30 UTC 10th March 2011

I’m sorry for the short notice of this change. One of our operational sysadmin team is ill, meaning that we won’t have cover during the time that we had originally planned.

Launchpad code hosting will be offline between 12.00 and 12.20 UTC for hardware maintenance on Wednesday, January 26. That’s tomorrow. This means you will be unable to push to, pull from or browse code hosted on Launchpad. All other Launchpad services will be unaffected.

On Friday, our codehosting server went offline unexpectedly. Turns out this was due to a hardware failure. Tomorrow, we will be fixing the underlying hardware problem, but that will mean more downtime. Sorry.

Update: The hardware upgrade went well, code hosting is back online.
