To convert UTC to your local time, take a look at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/UTCHowto or run: date -d '2021-03-18 21:00UTC'

Reason for outage: Replacement of FAS2 with the new fedora account system

Affected Services: All Fedora Services

Please join #fedora-admin or #fedora-noc on irc.freenode.net or add comments to the ticket for this outage above.


It won’t be the 18th since the Beta freeze will still be in place. I checked with the team yesterday on that. They’ll decide on Friday after the F34 Beta Go/No-Go what the new date is. I’ll be sure to let them know the announcement needs to be made more broadly.


Ah great. We’ll unpin it from Ask Fedora too then.

Thanks very much for checking.
