Schema change release tomorrow at 1700UTC

Tomorrow, Monday 14 October, 2013, 17:00 UTC (10:00 PDT, 13:00 EDT, 18:00 BST, 19:00 CEST) we’re going to release our next round of schema changes!

As it is typical with our fall schema changes, this one is a little simpler and more focused on cleanup, rather than massive new changes. This gives me hope that we will have smoother release than we did in the spring. 🙂

We’re going to make the site read-only and run off our backup database server while we upgrade our primary database server. I suspect that we should be in read-only mode for about an hour. The exact start time is not quite known — we’ll start our release process at 17:00 UTC, but when we go to read-only is hard to tell. We’ll tweet and give a shout in IRC when we’re ready.

  1. That would be 1800 BST, 1900 CEST, I’d think. Unless there have been some zone shifts that I am unaware of. 🙂
