Hello from Infra.

Today is the day for scheduled maintenance of gerrit, we'll be allocating 2
hours for the outage but don't expect it to take that long. During this time you
will not be able to access gerrit.

If you have any questions, or would like to follow along, please join us in


It's that time again... on Wednesday, May 02, 2018 20:00 UTC, the OpenStack
Project Infrastructure team is upgrading the server which runs
review.openstack.org to Ubuntu Xenial, and that means a new virtual machine
instance with new IP addresses assigned by our service provider. The new IP
addresses will be as follows:

    IPv4 ->
    IPv6 -> 2001:4800:7819:103:be76:4eff:fe04:9229

They will replace these current production IP addresses:

    IPv4 ->
    IPv6 -> 2001:4800:7819:103:be76:4eff:fe05:8525

We understand that some users may be running from egress-filtered
networks with port 29418/tcp explicitly allowed to the current
review.openstack.org IP addresses, and so are providing this
information as far in advance as we can to allow them time to update
their firewalls accordingly.

Note that some users dealing with egress filtering may find it
easier to switch their local configuration to use Gerrit's REST API
via HTTPS instead, and the current release of git-review has support
for that workflow as well.

We will follow up with final confirmation in subsequent announcements.
