Monthly GitHub maintenance

July 6, 2016  3:00pm – 6:00pm

The maintenance is complete and github.rcac is back in production, now at version 2.6.4. There are several bug fixes and security patches in this version, but no major feature updates.

Additionally, an ifrastructure change has been made to the way LDAP authentication is performed, which should hopefully eliminate occasional HTTPS "Error 500" messages you may have encountered in the past.

Thank you for your patience. Please let us know if you see any abnormalities.


Once again, the first Wednesday of the month, the github.rcac server will be briefly unavailable Wednesday, July 6, 2016 from 3:00pm – 6:00pm for a planned maintenance.

During this time, the server will undergo maintenance tasks that can not be completed with the server in production.

Operations requiring connection to the central server (e.g. new check-outs or pull requests, etc) may time out during the maintenance period. Operations with your own local repository will not be affected.

Thank you for your understanding. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
