The zope.org-related servers and services maintained by Zope  
Corporation will be moving to a new home late Thursday night Eastern  
Standard Time.

What services are affected?

The most important service addresses include...

  - www.zope.org
  - svn.zope.org
  - cvs.zope.org
  - mail.zope.org and lists.zope.org

How long will the outage last?

The servers will be moved physically to a new hosting provider. There  
will be an outage of about 2 hours for the physical move, as well as  
an outage while the new DNS information for these services propagate  
throughout the internet. Service may be spotty for several hours past  
the 2 hour physical move window. Work is slated to start at about  
11:00 PM Eastern Standard Time (04:00 GMT, 05:00 CEST).

How does this affect me?

If you are doing development on software stored on svn.zope.org, or if  
you want to surf www.zope.org or use the egg repository on zope.org  
you will see an outage lasting at least 2 hours. Please refrain from  
checking in software changes during this period and wait until the  
service addresses resolve normally. Mail to or from the Zope mailing  
lists will be interrupted until the physical move has been completed  
and the DNS record changes have propagated to your ISP.

The Zope Corporation sysadmin team will handle the move, if you have  
any questions please contact me directly and I will clear up any  
issues with them.
