On 7/16, Slashdot Media sites (including Slashdot and SourceForge) experienced a storage fault. Work has continued 24×7 on service restoration. Updates have been provided as each key service component was restored. We’ve provided four prior updates (7/18, 7/22, 7/24, 7/28) summarizing our infrastructure and service restoration status. This is our fifth and final large update for this incident.
As of 7/31, all Slashdot Media sites and services have been restored.
Activity since our 7/28 full update:
- SourceForge file upload capability was restored to service on 7/31, matching our announced ETA.
- SourceForge CVS service, non-Allura-backed Bazaar (bzr) SCM service, and interactive shell service were restored on 7/31, ahead of our announced ETA.
SourceForge staff will continue to monitor and respond to the support ticket queue. If you are in need of support, please submit a ticket at: https://sourceforge.net/p/forge/site-support/new/
