libreCMC March 31st - April 2nd site outage postmortem
Around 2AM EDT on March 31st, the libreCMC project servers became unavailable due to an infrastructure failure
with an upstream ISP in New York. Usually such an outage would be addressed within an hour or two,
but current events are making it difficult to get equipment and move staff. Going forward, the project is going to
assume that infrastructure failures are going to become more frequent and long-term, with the project planning accordingly.
More updates in regards to this will become available in the next week.
