What is the problem?
Due to on-site maintenance (T226778) going on some of the racks that host our primary database servers, we need to switchover some of our current primary masters to other hosts, to ensure that there is not an unexpected downtime as result of this on-site maintenance.
This means we need read-only windows to perform this maintenance.
How can we help you?
Notifying the affected wikis (below) with the scheduled maintenance.
What does success look like?
Affected wiki users will get to know that there will be a period of read-only time (30 minutes requested, expected just a few minutes if everything goes fine)
Users will know that the impact is the that: writes will be blocked, and reads will remain unaffected
