The linux-mips.org machine will be shutdown around 1730Z for a memory upgrade.
Recently MIPS Technologies, Inc.sold its Analog Business Group, the former Chipidea Lda to Synopsys. The linux-mips.org server machine was being hosted by MTI at the Chipidea site in Lisbon, Portugal, so linux-mips.org had to move to a new site. It is now generously being hosted by Imre Kaloz in Budapest, Hungary. Köszönöm szépen Imre!
The reverse DNS problem has been resolved.
The reverse DNS entries for linux-mips.org have been deleted. Since most mailserver are checking for existence of these, many users will no longer be able to receive email from linux-mips.org until this has been fixed.
Due to the sale of the Analog Business Group by MIPS Technologies linux-mips.org will have to move to a new server machine which will result in some downtime. Details are still being worked out.
Announced maintenance downtime canceled. Turned out it was actually possible to swap the drive without shutting down the system even though it supposedly wasn't hotswapable.
A drive of linux-mips.org's server machine is failing and will have to be replaced soon. This will result in some downtime with no further announcement.
