LAVA Downtime Planned

Just a reminder to everyone that I will start decommissioning the toolchain server and lava cloud tomorrow morning, and then LAVA will go offline on Thursday morning. If all goes according to plan then a limited LAVA service should be available late on Friday, and I will work across the weekend to get everything else back up and online.

We will be doing our best to keep the downtime to an absolute minimum, but the best laid plans can go awry. The major part that would push the availability out would be if our ISP do not keep to their commitment to get us connectivity by Friday. I will keep you informed as to progress during the move as and when possible.

Many thanks for your patience,
