GitHub Upgrade Schedule Change

Historically we have always scheduled upgrades for the NC State GitHub service for Friday afternoons at 5:00 PM. Rather than continuing to rely on the benevolence of GitHub support going above and beyond what we are entitled to, we are modifying our upgrade schedule to avoid outages from upgrades rolling through the weekend. Therefore, we will now be scheduling all GitHub upgrades for Monday at 5:00 PM.

Account Archival and Removal

We will be starting the account archive process at 10:00 AM EST, on Thursday, April 2. There is approximately 15GB of data to process across ~950 accounts. We don't anticipate this process taking longer than the weekend to complete, and hope to have the process finished by the close of business on Friday, if not before. The following Wednesday, April 8, beginning at 10:00 AM EST, we will begin removing the accounts. This process should complete within an hour or so.
