[Ci-users] [Infra] - Major outage for several services (please read)

That maintenance is dead in the middle of OpenStack Newton release [1]
which could prove quite bothersome for the Cloud SIG and RDO.

I'll put it at our meeting's agenda [2] tomorrow to discuss what are
the implications.
It'd be great if we could have someone from the CentOS CI/CBS
infrastructure for that item in case we have questions.
