Thank you for the heads up. It's always helpful to be able to *schedule* downtime. The improvement in transparancy of CentOS building that came with git.centos.org has been very nice. I'm very curious about your disaster recovery setup setup, if any. The numerous public mirrors work well for the RPM/SRPM repositories. But if you can say, is there anything in place for git.centos.org if its hosting data center goes toes up? I've been in the field long enough that I've seen any number of "5 9's guaranteed!' hosting sites get knocked completely off the air for a day or more. I'd also like to point out that this is one of the occasions when using GPG signed git tags would make it safer for me, as a developer, to clone someone else's git repository while you're off line, and be sure what is actually from the git.centos.org repo and what is not. Wouldn't want that to interfere with cleaning up the band-aid work, just a thought.
