Subject: [gentoo-dev] DOWNTIME ANNOUNCEMENT
Date: Tue, 06 Dec 2005 05:53:11
1 To all,
3 This is just an 7-8 hour warning for the coming downtime of
4 for upgrade. I plan to upgrade bugzilla the morning
5 (EDT) of December 7th. I plan on alotting 30 minutes for the upgrade,
6 although those in the past who have suffered through my upgrades, know
7 they have gone much quicker if I do not hit any issues. I will send out
8 a one hour reminder before bugs.g.o comes down. At the time of the
9 upgrade, I will bring down our current buzilla, backup the database,
10 copy over the new install, run some sanity checks, and then open it back
11 up to the world.
13 For some background information:
14 It is currently running 2.18.3, and I have since been running Mozilla's
15 latest stable release of Bugzilla, 2.20 in my test environment[1]
17 There is currently a metabug set up[2] in which I have been taking
18 questions and comments about any outstanding issues related to the test
19 environment. I advise those who have accounts on the bugstest.g.o
20 environment (it is an old snapshot of the bugs.g.o database, so newer
21 accounts may not be present) to make sure I have not forgotten to
22 fix/customize anything to our current environment's specifications.
24 Disclaimer for Gentoo dev's: This is your time to complain about
25 anything and everything you do not like about the Bugzilla. $Diety
26 willing, a flame war will erupt and mass hysteria will commence,
27 preventing any further Bugzilla upgrades in the future.
29 Once again, bugs.g.o downtime around 930-1030am EDT, depending on when I
30 wake up, check the metabug, make breakfast and sit myself back down at
31 my workstation. It should take less than 30 minutes, bearing I do not
32 hit any snafus.
34 For those time zone challenged:
37 Regards,
38 Jeffrey
