ANNOUNCE: [MAINT] Unplanned DNS outage for domain

Around 10am EDT yesterday, July 21, the DNS zone signatures
expired.  This was fixed today, around 1600 EDT.

The code that auto-signs the domain is buggy and apparently got itself
into a snit and wouldn't re-sign the domain.  Of course the errors are,
apparently, hidden in log files and not blatantly presented so Linas
missed it.  He has added another cron job to run the commands to clean up
the detritus even if the signing is in good shape, so this failure mode
shouldn't happen again.

We are sorry for the inconvenience,

-derek (for Linas, who runs the DNS domain)
