UPDATE: hardware is exchanged and everything is back to normal.
SUSE-IT together with the openSUSE Heroes routinely performs service to Services on an ongoing basis to ensure that everything is up to date and running smoothly.
In preparation of a planned bandwidth upgrade in the Nuremberg data center, a core switch has to be replaced. This might result in short unattainability of all openSUSE services hosted in Nuremberg, namely (just to name the most important ones) the openSUSE Build Service, Connect and the English wiki pages.
We apologise for the trouble caused.
