An important set of Mageia servers will be taken offline this weekend
for maintenance. Ielo.net, a French network provider, has been sponsoring
the Mageia project by providing hosting for our servers since the beginning
of the project. The room in Marseille where the Mageia servers are
currently located has to be closed, and our servers will be moved this weekend to a
different room in another building. We will take this opportunity to
add more disks to the build system, which are needed to host the new Mageia
The following services will be unavailable for a few hours this weekend:
- the mailing lists
- the @mageia.org email aliases: mail will be received by our secondary
mail server, but will not be delivered until the primary server is
- the wiki
- the forums
- the build system
- the svn repository
- the mirrors database
- the bugzilla
- the Mageia user account pages
The following services will remain operational:
To continue working on the coming release and to contact contributors during the
downtime, please use the IRC channels, as they will be unaffected. A good place
to start is #mageia on irc.freenode.net.
We will update this post to report progress of the operation.
Update: new disks have been added, and servers moved, so everything should be back online. Thanks to maka from Ielo for coming to datacenter on saturday evening and help moving the servers.
