Description

Mailing list maintenance window - 2015-06-02 17:00 UTC to 19:00 UTC

I'll be taking the mailing list server offline for a (hopefully) short window.

At the time of this announcement, this will be simply to process a single request. There is a good chance another request or two will be appended to this one before the actual window arrives.

The downtime will start on 2015-06-02 @ 17:00 UTC and end at 19:00 UTC.

Current Tasks:

T100832 - replace lists.wikimedia.org sha1 certificate with sha256
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T100832

T100707 - Rename pywikipedia-l to pywikibot
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T100707

Some may recall the last mailman maintenance window wasn't without incident: https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Incident_documentation/20150519-Mailman This has been taken into account, and further testing of changes and mailman both before and after maintenance have been expanded.

During this time, all mailing list traffic, as well as online archives, may become unavailable. Once the window has ended, all mail routing should resume normally, and any messages sent during the window will then be delivered accordingly.

All associated tasks and changes are linked from https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T100711.

This mail has (initially) been send to the lists administrators list and wikitech-l. Please feel free to forward to any other lists or parties that would need to know about this maintenance window.
