There is some maintenance to be done in the following areas of our openSUSE infrastructure:
* rsync.opensuse.org * widehat.opensuse.org * tube.opensuse.org
We've a replacement host as failover during the downtime, so you shouldn't notive the downtime in the best case (it's just an IP-Address switch). But as the replacement host has a different IP-Address and some Administrators may using hardcoded IP-Addresses to sync from rsync.opensuse.org, maybe you are affected.
We will reinstall widehat.opensuse.org (IP: 188.8.131.52) on Wednesday, 2009-12-09 and need to resync the whole mirror content again before we can switch back again. As the content is currently about 1.4 TB, this might need some time (planned: Friday, 2009-12-11).
During the downtime, a new "widehat.opensuse.org (IP: 184.108.40.206) serves the whole content - so again: it's not a real downtime, just an IP-Address switch.
With kind regards, Lars (on behalf of the openSUSE-Admin Team)
