As some of you may already know, our server test instance has been running on Docker for a while now. It is working quite well and it brought many improvements and advantages over the old manually-managed instance.
I worked quite hard to make it working because I wanted to dedicate more time to the apps and less time to the server, the result is in this brand new repository on GitHub available for anyone to test out and play. Feel free to open issues or ask for help in the forum, we’ll help as much as we can.
Down to business: Kontalk will be moved to Docker and it will require a relatively short downtime, during which Kontalk will not be available. The available windows for this maintenance operation are:
- 2017-09-10 from 8:00 to 12:00 UTC (will be probably discarded because it’s too close)
- 2017-09-13 from 19:00 to 23:00 UTC
- 2017-09-16 from 20:00 to 24:00 UTC
- 2017-09-17 from 8:00 to 12:00 UTC
The window will be selected in the following days (sorry, real life stuff), but the actual downtime should be from 10 to 20 minutes. I already tested the procedure and automated everything that I could automate.
Other news will follow on this thread.
UPDATE: the selected window is Saturday 2017-09-23 from 15:00 to 19:00 CET.
