Emergency maintenance for GitHub

January 12, 2017  9:00pm – 10:00pm

Patching has been completed and github.rcac.purdue.edu service is back in full production mode.

Original message

Tonight, Thursday, January 12, 2017, at 9:00pm – 10:00pm github.rcac.purdue.edu will be taken down for brief emergency maintenance. GitHub announced a critical security vulnerability this week. As a result, our GitHub instance needs to be taken down for a few minutes of patching.

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.

We apologize for late notice and appreciate your understanding. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
