At about 02:00 UTC June 18th 2014, changes at the domain registrar
caused the CentOS.org domain to get marked as Inactive. This caused
widespread outages, with all services in centos.org including:

- - Mirror Network ( internal centos.org as well as external )
- - All mirrorlist
- - All isolist
- - Website ( including bugs.centos.org and wiki.centos.org
- - All internal support infrastructure

Services were restored at the registrar just before 9:00 AM UTC June
18th, however depending on dns path some users might still see issues
for upto 6 to 8 hrs from that point.

I hope to have a detailed washdown later in the day today, to include
details on what happened and how we might prevent this from happening
again in the future.

Should there be any concerns, please get in touch.
