For security reasons we will be updating and rebooting many (possibly
all) cloud-vps VMs today, over the weekend, and on Monday.
The first step of this will be a reboot of all bastions (including the
toolforge login hosts) in about an hour, at 18:30 UTC. That means that
all ssh sessions to cloud-vps hosts will be interrupted as proxy
sessions are terminated.
After the tools bastion reboots, users of toolforge should not be
further affected by these reboots. All other cloud-vps users can expect
at least one more surprise reboot over the next few days. If you need
that reboot to be scheduled at a particular time please contact me
Sorry for the inconvenience!
