Hi all,

As announced, there is initiative going on for the Fedora/CentOS auth
backend merge (see
as reminder)

Let me forward what was discussed at the Fedora side this morning (and
only impacting the "staging" setup, in case you'd be testing it in the
next hours) :

Hey folks!

The AAA team would like to test a re-import of the accounts in staging.
We have learnt of a way to speed up the import significantly (20 times)
and we'd like to test it.
For that we'll need to remove all existing accounts and start from
scratch. It means that if you're currently testing your application in
staging, your account will disappear for something between hours to a
couple days.
We're going to start the process in 4-5 hours. Please shout if you're in
the middle of something and you'd prefer us to wait for tomorrow.
