As part of an overall project to move squeak.org services to a new service
provider (hetzner.com), the https://squeaksource.com server will be migrated
today, 31 August, beginning at 20:00 UTC. Due to time required for DNS
updates to propagate, the change will take effect over a number of hours
(expect up to one day).

This is the general purpose squeaksource.com server, and does not affect
http://source.squeak.org, which will be migrated separately at a later date.

What you need to know:

For most people, no change will be noticed. Read access to repositories
will continue with little or no interruption.

If you are committing updates to existing projects, there is a risk of
those updates being committed to the "wrong" server during the transition
period. No data or files will be lost, but some updates may need to be
re-applied. The squeaksource.com administrator will be watching for this
and will either fix any missing updates or request the affected project
administrator to do so.

If you are a project administrator or if you are planning to create a
new project on squeaksource.com, please avoid making changes during the
transition period.

In the event of problems, please report the concern here on the squeak-dev
list. If you do not have access to that list, you can report the concern
to lewis@mail.msen.com.
