WiscList Unavailable - Sunday, October 21st, 8 AM - 10 AM

Posted: 03:00:00, Friday, Oct 19, 2007   Expiration: 06:00:00, Sunday, Oct 21, 2007  

The WiscList service will be unavailable Sunday, October 21st, 8 AM - 10 AM, for a scheduled upgrade.

There will be no access to the administrative interface or the archives/forums interface during the outage. In addition, while no mail will be lost, mail sent to lists during the outage will be held for delivery when the service is re-established. All lists in the form <listname>@lists.wisc.edu or <listname>@lists.services.wisc.edu will be impacted.

The above outage will be used to upgrade the WiscList application. The upgrade will provide performance improvements and resolution to some outstanding issues including the problem with break of personal digital signatures.

We have noted no functional changes with the upgraded application, but as with any upgrade, please test any custom processes you have that may make use of the WiscList service in any way after the scheduled outage. This would include embedded html for the purposes of subscribing list members.

We apologize for any inconvenience the outage may cause.

Questions or comments can be directed to wisclist@doit.wisc.edu. For more information about the service please visit our service site at http://www.doit.wisc.edu/lists/wisclist/.
