Hi folks, sorry for the short notice. I just realized that some
recent fixes to cvs.module and project* are going to require some
really short d.o downtime when I update the sources. There are a few
db updates that have to run, and between the time I upgrade the
source and run update.php, all sorts of CVS-account related things
will blow up with SQL errors and the like.
So, my plan is to:
a) disable the CVS repos (no commits or tags allowed).
b) backup the cvs-related DB tables that are effected.
c) take d.o offline with a "upgrading d.o modules, back in 5 minutes"
d) do the upgrade.
e) bring d.o back online.
f) re-enable the CVS repos.
The whole thing should take 10 minutes, with d.o itself down for
maybe 3 or 4.
