What: Potential Downtime of LLVM Web/SVN Server
When: January 6, 2009 from 8:00 am Central time to 12:00 pm Central time (4 hours)
On January 6, 2009, some maintenance will be done on the heating/cooling system of Siebel Center (the building in which the LLVM web/SVN server is located). The cooling system will be turned off, and it's possible that temperatures may rise in the server rooms. If they rise too high, the CS IT staff will shut down systems to prevent them from being damaged.
My current recommendation is to avoid using SVN during the 4 hours of maintenance. With the number of machines maintained by our IT staff and the fact that people are on vacation, I cannot guarantee that we can provide advanced warning if/when the LLVM server is shut down.
The last time they did work on the cooling system, no servers were shut down. However, you never know what will happen, so I recommend erring on the side of caution.
