Mozilla Scheduled Downtime – 10/09/2008, 7pm – 11pm PDT (0200 – 0600 10/10/2008 UTC)

We will have a scheduled maintenance window tonight from 7pm to 11:00pm PDT. This is being tracked in master bug 459262. The following changes will take place:

  • 7:00pm PDT (0200 UTC) Thirdlane PBX upgrades. We will be upgrading the configuration GUI and its underlying Asterisk add-on features for our phone system. The phone system itself in Mountain View will probably be down less than 5 minutes. Specific features (conference call rooms, provisioning of new telephones, calls to phones in Toronto) may be offline for up to 6 hours. Duration 6 hours
  • 7:00pm PDT (0200 UTC) Mailman / mailing list upgrades. We’ll be upgrading Mailman to 2.1.11 and upgrading the host OS to RHEL5. This will affect all mailing lists and all email services under,, and Duration 3 hours.

Please let me know if you have any reason why we should not proceed with this planned maintenance. As always, we aim to keep downtime to as little as possible, but unexpected complications can arise causing longer downtime periods than expected. All systems should be operational by the end of the maintenance window.

As mentioned, this maintenance window is tracked in bug 459262. Feel free to comment directly in that bug (or this blog) if you see issues past the planned downtime.
