I should have sent these to the announce@ and users@ mailing lists, just
in case there are wiki editors on those lists who are not reading arch@
(which is ideally the central all-contributors mailing list.)
We'll adjust the Infra team methods in the future to send outage
announcements to all these lists for maximum coverage.
Below are details of this outage, which began 30 minutes ago. The wiki
is in readonly mode until it is migrated fully to OpenShift.

We are having a four-hour freeze and short outage of the wiki and www
portions of ovirt.org
to migrate to OpenShift.
2100 UTC Thu 29 Nov to 0100 UTC Fri 30 Nov
date -d '2100 UTC Thu Nov 29'
We are targeting the DNS switch to happen at 2359 UTC Thu 29 Nov.
This migration includes updating to a new theme for the site. We expect
there to be no downtime for access to content on the website. During the
four-hour window we'll be working to make sure URLs linking in to the
old content forward directly to the new website. The freeze on the wiki
is expected to complete on or before the four-hour mark.
The new theme and information layout have been presented and discussed,
this is just the final portion where we turn the lights on in a new
location, and dim the lights in the old.
Any questions, concerns, ideas, etc. just let us know. We'll do a final
minute reminder via email and IRC when the outage window starts. Status
updates will also by via email and IRC, as arisen.

== Future considerations ==
If we had a strict infrastructure change management process, we would
have coordinated better with the rest of the contributor teams to be
sure this work didn't interrupt their workflow.
