Launchpad service interruptions 17th, 18th and 19th June

On June 17th, Launchpad will be unavailable for five hours from 22.00 UTC. Following that, there will be service interruptions on June 18th and 19th.

Downtime details

  • June 17th 22.00 UTC – 03.00 UTC: all of Launchpad will be offline.
  • June 18th 22.00 UTC – 00.00 UTC: code browse and pushing and pulling to code branches hosted on Launchpad will be unavailable.
  • June 19th 22.00 UTC – 03.00 UTC: uploading to, building and publishing in package archives – both distribution archives and PPAs – will be unavailable.

Why this is happening

We’re upgrading the servers that host Launchpad to use the latest version of Ubuntu, 8.04 LTS (also known as Hardy Heron). This will give us an improved platform on which to develop new Launchpad services. Specifically, we’ll get Python 2.5 and PostgreSQL 8.3, along with updates to several libraries that Launchpad relies on.

We’re sorry for the down-time and service interruptions that these upgrades will cause.

If you have any questions, please post them to the launchpad-users.
