We have to do some hardware/software maintenance on the machine
actually hosting the Wiki service (http://wiki.centos.org). Instead of
just taking the wiki instance down during that maintenance, we've
decided to relocate it to a temporary host, proceed to maintenance,
and then migrate it back to the previous node.

Migration is scheduled for Friday October 10th, 11:00 am UTC time.
You can convert to local time with $(date -d '2014-10-10 11:00 UTC')

Migration will happen in several steps:
1 - we "freeze" the wiki on the actual node, transfer data, update the
A record, restore the service on the temporary node (disruption ~ 30min)
2 - we proceed to the needed maintenance on first node (no disruption
in service, but no estimated time)
3 - depending on time needed for step [2], and assuming we have no
hardware issue, we proceed like step [1], but in reverse (so
disruption ~30 minutes again)

Thanks for your comprehending and patience.

on behalf of the Infra team,
