Collaboration Tools Updates for January 2018


(Christie Koehler) #1

Quick note to let everyone know I’ve made a bunch of updates across our collaboration tools. Details below.

I encountered no issues and there was only minimal downtime for each of the applications. There will be additional downtime this week when Digital Ocean applies updates to the software managing our VPSs.

Let me know if you have any issues or concerns.

It’s possible folks will have to update/reset their Discourse passwords to be able to log in again. I did.
