Due to a hardware/DC relocate operation, we'll have to move the
existing CentOS forums instance (hosted on
https://www.centos.org/forums) to a new node.

Migration is scheduled for """"Monday December 16th, 8:00 am UTC time"""".
You can convert to local time with $(date -d '2019-12-16 8:00 UTC')

The expected "downtime" is estimated to ~20 minutes , time needed to :

 - freeze forums instance
 - backup instance data (DB + files)
 - import data to new host and validate
 - enable the httpd redirection to the new host

Worth knowing that during the migration process, the forums instance will
not be available.

Thanks for your comprehending and patience.
