These services won’t all be offline simultaneously, but each will experience a brief (less than 5 minutes) outage while the server hosting it is rebooted to apply operating system patches.

Server maintenance completed successfully for the servers hosting the EECS website, FTP, Jabber and Sympa services.
However, the Sympa web interface was unavailable for about 15 minutes due to a file permissions problem and Jabber was unavailable for about one-and-a-half hours due to an issue with its SSL certificate.
My apologies for the extended outages of Sympa and Jabber. I hope they didn’t cause any inconvenience.
