Launchpad service interruptions next week

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 (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

You can also find us in #launchpad on Freenode.

Please note: everyone who works for Canonical is now subscribed to our
new ultra low traffic launchpad-announce mailing list, which is why
you've received this email.
