Hi everybody,

The new server with the future site is back up. In fact, it has been accessible friday afternoon.

This planned downtime was useful for us to leverage all blades on the new server and that the VMs that are running can communicate together. 

The new installation is almost finished, and is expected to be complete this coming monday.

If you have questions, you can reply or ask by e-mail, or via IRC.

Regards

Renoir

This is a planned downtime; Etienne, the volunteer assisting Renoir in setting up the servers, networking, and OpenStack management is very busy, but is working on our systems as much as he is able. We expect this to be resolved in the next day or so.
