Bug Watch Updating Temporarily Down

Some Launchpad users may have noticed that we are not syncing bug watches with external trackers as we should. We have had to turn off syncing with external trackers while we work on a problem we have had with hammering bug trackers with large numbers of bug watches in Launchpad.

The Launchpad Bugs team has been doing a lot of work recently to improve our handling of bug syncing between Launchpad and external trackers. We’ve fixed several bugs. Unfortunately, we cannot re-enable syncing with external trackers until we are certain we will not hammer an external tracker.

We expect bug syncing to be down through the weekend and fixed early next week. Interested developers can follow progress at the bug linked above.
