Brief maintenance on Mailman Web interface and archives (completed)

We’ll be performing brief maintenance on the Web server that runs the Mailman list interface and archives tonight (June 9, 2011) between 10:00 PM and 11:00 PM Pacific time.

During that hour, there will be a period of approximately ten minutes where the Mailman Web site (for managing lists and viewing archived list messages) will not be reachable from Web browsers. No other services will be affected, and Mailman e-mail message delivery will continue as normal.

This brief maintenance will allow us to switch to more powerful server hardware, improving the capacity and speed of the archives.

Update: the maintenance was completed with less than ten minutes downtime.
