Planned outage: server software upgrades on January 30.

From: Russell McOrmond <russell@flora.ca>

   I am planning to be doing some server software upgrades tomorrow.  I 
don't have an exact time when I'll be starting, nor how long I will be 
taking.  I will start as early as I can in the morning, and will 
continue working until everything is working after the upgrade.


Tech notes:

   The server is virtualized using Xen with a Xen0, and three XenU's. 
The plan is to upgrade in stages where I upgrade the Xen0 from Fedora 
Core 5 to Fedora 8.  The XenU's would get matching upgraded kernels (so 
they would run from the Xen0), but would otherwise remain on the older 
Fedora Core.


   Once I am comfortable with that upgrade I will then update the XenU's 
(in sequence): calcutta.flora.ca (FLORA.org), hugli.flora.ca 
(mail/DNS/etc server), newdelhi.flora.ca (Other websites, Mailman lists, 
etc).  This later stage is likely to happen on a different day, so that 
the downtime of each stage is minimal.
