[mylyn-dev] Fwd: [eclipse.org-committers] Eclipse.org outage

You may have noticed that Eclipse.org was temporarily unavailable
yesterday (see below). The webmasters are still working on restoring
all services.

Meanwhile, signing of Mylyn builds is not working and we may need to
revert to providing unsigned builds until that is fixed. More
background can be found here:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=347744 .

Some projects are also experiencing problems with lost commits in Git:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=347763 . If you pushed
changes recently please check if they are present in the repository on

As you may have noticed, eclipse.org was totally down for a few hours
earlier today.  We are slowly bringing things back up, so we
appreciate your patience.

One power supply in a 14-disk tray literally exploded (sparks were
coming out of it) and that tripped the circuit breaker for the power
strip that our switching gear was on.

Coincidentally, one of the two NFS servers (which is on pair of
totally difference power circuits) ceased to respond to network
activity, and is now failing to restart.  This server hosted shared
files for CVS, Git, SVN but not downloads.  We've therefore reverting
to using our second NFS server for all shared files.  This means that
until we restore service to the failed NFS server, most of eclipse.org
will appear to be sluggish/slow and will be increasingly slow as more
concurrent builds occur.

While in this state, we would appreciate using the build and Hudson
servers for essential builds only.  I will keep you informed on any
progress we make in restoring our data backend.
