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 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.

Long version:

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.
