Hardware problems

21.08.2007

Our main cvs and mailing list server, herc.mirbsd.org, has some hardware problems at the moment. This means that the mailing lists are down until further notice. Anonymous CVS access (not from allbsd.org), this website, and BitTorrent are working fine though.

Read/write CVS access to CVS for developers will be restored in one or two days, making tg@’s SPARCstation the temporary CVS master.

Waldemar Brodkorb (wbx@) has donated hardware to act as a supplemental AnonCVS/AnonRSYNC server, which is being initialised and tested right now, as the hosting site only accepts boxen that have passed a typical stress test. Eventually, this box will act as a secondary mail server as well.

For now, please use IRC for bug reports, feature requests, feedback, etc.

Update (2007-08-24): We’re almost back to normal, the server hardware has changed a little until proper replacement can be used (with proper, I mean replacing the IDE crap with SCSI, etc. while we’re at replacing anyway, and actually investing some – well, a lot of – money and effort). Mailing lists work again, and commits will be enabled for developers during short timeframes a few times per day, with immediate rsync actions being taken afterwards just to be on the safe side. This however means: FrOSCon CDs will contain older versions of MirOS, big financial loss for us, and MirOS #10 will be delayed for a yet unknown amount of time (but sparc is finally ready since 23rd).
