Trac/SVN/Beta site outages

Hey folks,

Sorry I didn’t post about this earlier, but if you haven’t noticed trac/svn/the beta page have all been down for a day or three.

Over the last few months we’ve seen all three go up/down at random times. Basically what happened is that we were seeing system failures in random places, which would drive the process utilization up sporadically (into ranges of 200 or 300, and even more).

Long story short, new hardware was acquired last weekend and the road to migrating everything to the new server was being taken. In the meantime the old server decided to bite the dust at the start of the migration.

Normally we’d have it up sooner, James our hoster has been pretty good to us. He’s hosted the Growl stuff and Forums for years without much of any downtime until recently. Anytime we’d see a problem he’d usually get it sorted.

This week was unfortunately also a bad spot for him personally. I don’t feel that it’s right for me to disclose what happened, but more or less it’s why it’s taking a bit to get things going. James has promised to have things up for us as soon as he can, your patience is appreciated.

Also, to quote Evan:

We’re doing the absolute best we can, I promise. Thanks for both your patience and for caring about Adium enough to care about whether trac is up or not


  1. Out of curiosity, what model computer is the new server (what model was the old one?)

  2. Visiting the trac roadmap is a guilty pleasure of mine, watching the 1.0 release getting closer and closer… 🙂

  3. I know how hard it is trying to manage a system (or more), do other work, have a personal life and also dealing with all the other extras life throws at you.

    Sure I am sitting here like a kid waiting to unwrap his presents, but like everything else patience is a virtue and I am greatful for all that is being done. Keep up the good work, no matter what you are doing 🙂

  4. Is the beta page where beta binary builds can be downlaoded? If so, is it back on-line?

  5. I love this little duck, but, firt, I hope that James will get better, it’s more important.

    Come back soon as you can.

    Thanks.! 😀

  6. (the beta builds are still online, can be found from the beta wiki page in google cache)
