The Linux distro on the server will be upgraded on 2016-05-15. The upgrade
process will start at around 20h UTC.
Whole data on the server will be backed up on this occasion and there will
be at least two reboots. If everything goes well, it will be all over until
midnight (UTC) and the services will be capable of running as usual.
On the day of the upgrade there will be “live” updates in this feed (as long as
the server is up).
$ADMIN is considering deprecating our self-hosted CI server
in favor of GitLab CI because the CI server uses 80.8MB (~16%)
of our (precious) RAM (in idle mode!). (And GitLab CI is probably technically
superior than the service we are hosting.)
To make a possible migration easier, here is already a tutorial-like wiki
page describing how to use GitLab CI for LaTeX projects.
aufenthaltsraum.cf is now showing some domain parking nonsense
(thanks to ML for noticing this), and $ADMIN could not found any notice
from the registrar which explains why this is the case (except for the fact
that the domain has also disappeared from the domain management interface).
$ADMIN will be looking into this – #technikeristinformiert.
You can use aufenthaltsraum.tk (or aufenthaltsraum.ml)
while this problem persists, but beware that these domains are also managed
by the same registerar. Alternatively, the IP addresses 126.96.36.199
and 2604:a880:400:d0::b:e001 of our server are likely to be unchanged for
The maintenance feed is now online and will inform you
about non-critical maintenance actitivities on the server which don’t require
a reboot and aren’t expected to effect user space activity in any other way.
