    Hash: SHA1

    Hey everyone,

    Just a heads up to everyone, I'm going to be taking the master (hera)
    backend server offline for a couple of hours tomorrow (Friday, CST)
    afternoon. Downtime is going to get used for finishing flipping over
    the master to new hardware, which was very generously donated by
    Hewlett-Packard. We are moving up to a new DL380 G5. That said I will
    need time to shut everything down, get a current rsync from the old
    hardware to the new hardware and confirm that serves are restored on the
    new machine.

    I'm expecting the entire downtime to only take a couple of hours, but
    since we all know things will take longer I'm going to declare the
    window from 1200 CST (1800 UTC Friday Nov 7th). Expect the window to
    run through 2000 UTC, and if things are up and running before that I'll
    let people know. Otherwise if there are problems you'll see another
    e-mail from me.

    If you have questions, comments, concerns, etc - please send them to me
    CC ftpadmin@kernel.org

    Just a heads up to everyone, ran slightly over (rsync took longer to
    verify the move than I expected). But we are moved over to the much
    bigger and faster new master.kernel.org server.

    For those curious it's a:
    HP DL380 G5
    2 x Intel Quad Core Xeon's
    16G ram
    Pile more disk (including an external MSA chassis)

    Thanks go out to HP for the new hardware, and their continued support of
    Kernel.org!!!

    If there are problems, issues or concerns please report them to
    ftpadmin@kernel.org, a quick look around seems to indicate everything
    looks good however.
