WHAT: Upgrading Operating System on Code
WHEN: Feb 3, 2019 1200-2300 US/EST (1700-0400 UTC)
tl;dr: I am planning to upgrade the OS on code.gnucash.org on February
3, 2019 from 1200-2300 US/EDT (1700-0400 UTC). During this
time, git master, wiki, email/mailman, and gncbot/irc logs will
all be unavailable. I'll be on #gnucash IRC for real-time
updates and notices.
The GnuCash "everything" server is getting a little long on the tooth,
and to enable some upgraded build tools I plan to upgrade the server
from Fedora 25 to Fedora 29. I plan to do this upgrade on Sunday,
February 3, 2019, starting somewhere around 12:00 noon US/EST (although
my personal schedule might push that back, hense the long maintenance
window). I've upgraded a few systems from F25 -> F29 already, some of
them upgraded in an hour, one system took over 4 hours.
Code has lots of services so I expect it will take a long time to
upgrade and verify that everything is working.
During the upgrade window code will be unavailable, and the services
running on code will be unavailable. I will stay on IRC during the
upgrade to make real-time announcements.
Please let me know if this time frame does not work for you.
