We are on the move.
== The Plan ==
A new machine (Tōshirō), recently acquired, which was on the way to be installed for production, is going to be moved this very sunday into a datacenter. This was not the original plan, but we decided to haste things a bit, and happily found a hosting for it.
Critical services are going to be "displaced" as fast as possible. A few others will be handled one by one during the following days, because a lot more configuration needs to be checked, and also lot's of data moved.
== The First Step ==
As soon as general configuration and critical services are done, we are going to push the web online again. Then, for those still having access to their web content: please DO NOT modify or add anything starting from sunday, or it will probably be lost while we are copying data to the new server.
== General Recommandations ==
Services may have unvolontary downtimes, please be patient. We are doing our best, but unexpected problems sometimes happen.
Do not rely anymore on orfeo.duckcorp.org hostname, DO USE the proper service alias (smtp.duckcorp.org, imap.duckcorp.org, ...) or you will not be able to access services if they are moved to another machine. It should already be ok, as we advertised aliases quite a lot ; be warned we won't advertise any service relocation in the future if the admin team deem it necessary. If you don't know the proper alias to use, just ask us, via mail or IRC.
Drink beer ! It helps forget problems, forgive bad people, and is a good social catalyst ;-).
