Community site downtime announcement

Canonical is in the process of moving out of one data centre and into a new one.
Unfortunately this will require downtime for some of the Ubuntu community services hosted in the old data centre.
The downtime window will start at 07:00 UTC on Saturday 18th August 2012 and last up to 12 hours (i.e. until 19:00 UTC) but we will do our best to minimise the actual downtime.
The services are:

LoCo DNS updates *only* (DNS resolution will still work)
Other Ubuntu services (such as the package archive and CD images servers, Ubuntu SSO, Ubuntu One etc.) will *NOT* be affected.
Please accept our apologies for the interruption to these services and the short notice of the interruption. Unfortunately due to circumstances outside of our control we a) have a very short window in which to do the move and b) have been unable to finalise the timing until very recently.
If you have any questions or if this downtime window is likely to cause severe issues for your project/users, please contact me [Chris Jones, cmsj at canonical.com]
