Drupal Expecting Downtime; Looking for Beta Testers for Relaunch
For Drupal users out there, expect some downtime from Tuesday October 19th At 00:00 UTC (Monday October 18th 5PM PDT, 8PM EDT).
At that time, according to a blog post, the Drupal crew will be launching the redesign of Drupal.org, with a new theme, unified search and dashboard.
Users can expect about one hour of downtime, but the Drupal folks are planning a two-hour maintenance window.
According to the official post, the site should be back up by 02:00 UTC (7PM PDT, 10PM EDT).
If you're interested in reviewing the new site, head over to http://beta.drupal.org (u:drupal, p:drupal), where users can test functionality they use to ensure that it's working properly.
