[CentOS-devel] Important infra outage notification - dates to be discussed

Due to some reorganization at the DC/Cage level, we'll have to
shutdown/move/reconfigure a big part of our hosted infra for the
following services :
- cbs.centos.org (Koji)
- accounts.centos.org (auth backend)
- ci.centos.org (jenkins-driven CI environment)

We're working on a plan to minimize the downtime/reconfiguration part,
but at first sight, due to the hardware move of the racks/recabling
parts/etc, the announced downtime will be probably ~48h.

What does that mean ? That during this window, nobody will be able to
build/tests packages, nor be able to triggers automatically CI jobs
As said, we're working on an agenda with the team operating the DC, but
we'd like you (cbs and ci users) to give us feedback on the best (or
worst ?) time line for such migration.

For example if you know that your $project will have a release soon, and
already have an agenda for such release (and so build/ci) and that you
rely on that infra, we'd like you to communicate those informations to
us, so that we can try to find the best possible time slot for the
migration, minimizing the impact on the whole CentOS ecosystem (and so
for all our users)

Feel free to answer in this thread, or find us in #centos-devel on freenode.
