Website/forum/wiki to go down for a while

Postby gapan » 18. Oct 2017, 08:29

The company that is hosting our webserver, which carries our main page, forum and wiki, has to assign the server a new IP. This will probably happen sometime in the next couple of days, but we're not sure about the exact timeframe yet. During the switch, the main page, forum and wiki will not be accessible and it may take a few hours until the DNS changes propagate.

Hopefully we will be able to keep the downtime to a minimum.

The mailing list, IRC channel and all repositories will continue functioning of course.
