On 2002-11-14 (Thursday), the site, project mailing
list services, and the primary download server (which handles the
redirects for all download requests) will be offline for a period of
two to three hours, starting at 16:00 Pacific (GMT-8).

On 2002-11-17 (Sunday), project CVS services, project shell services,
project web services (including all VHOSTs), and project database
services will be offline for a period of up to twelve hours, starting
at 10:00 Pacific (GMT-8). Project web services will be restored first,
but will be brought up initially with read-only access to project group
directory space. Static web content will be served correctly during this
time period, but application-driven and database-dependent content and
CGI scripts will not function correctly. Issues encountered during this
time period SHOULD NOT be reported to; they are an
expected side-effect of this outage.

Both outages (2002-11-14 at 16:00 for 3 hours, and 2002-11-17 at 10:00
for 12 hours) have been scheduled to permit the relocation of site
hardware by staff.

All inquiries regarding this outage,, or your project
on should be directed to the team by
submitting a Support Request. Support IS NOT provided via email.
