Linerva-announce -- Announcements of Linerva outages and service changes


About Linerva-announce
English (USA)

This low-volume list receives announcements of outages and service changes for Linerva, the SIPB Linux dialup server for the MIT community.

Outages not related to security problems will be announced at least 3 days in advance, and will be accompanied with changes to the motd and messages sent via wall. Outages that result from security problems may occur on arbitrarily short notice, depending on the nature of the vulnerability.
