Rackspace Move Scheduled for Sunday, September 27th at 5PM Pacific Time

On Sunday, September 27th at 5PM Pacific time (see it in your timezone) we will begin the final move to Rackspace. We are aiming to have less than an hour of website and push unavailability if everything goes according to plan. During this period, public and private clone, fetch, and pull operations will continue to function normally. Once the final data synchronization is complete and the new installation passes a final inspection, we will switch the DNS entries and you’ll be able to start using a new and improved GitHub!

The user impact from the switch should be minimal, but there are a few things to note:

  • On your first SSH operation to the new GitHub IP, your SSH client will issue a warning, but will not cause you any hassle or make you change any configuration:
