Drupal.org Maintenance: Oct 23rd 14:00 PDT (21:00 UTC)

Completed!

Drupal.org will be affected by maintenance Thursday, October 23rd 14:00 PDT, 21:00 UTC.

An increase of the MySQL innodb_buffer_pool_size will cause a short downtime for Drupal.org while MySQL is restarted. We plan on a 30 minute window of potential instability, though the actual outage should be 5 minutes or less.

Please follow the @drupal_infra Twitter account for any issues encountered during the maintenance window.

Thanks for your patience!
