The site will be down for maintenance this weekend (Saturday, May 14, 2011) starting at 22:00 PDT for a MySQL upgrade. We expect the outage to last only a few minutes and plan to roll back if downtime exceeds 15 minutes. During this time, the site and all repository access via git/ssh will be unavailable.
Update: Maintenance was a little longer than planned (29 minutes), but the MySQL upgrade went smoothly.
