Earlier today, we migrated to a shiny new stack on shiny new servers. As part of this, we're also migrating the repository services, which will remain offline for a little while longer.
Not to worry, your repositories are safe and sound, we're just doing the repository server move out of band of the main migration.
I'll update this post once repository services are back online.
Update: Repo services have been restored.
Rolling Upgrades of Subversion Repositories on Monday, October 29th Starting at 15:00 UTC (completed)

About a month ago we upgraded to Subversion 1.7. On Monday, we will be doing rolling upgrades of all of our Subversion repositories to the latest on disk format. There will be no overall interruption of service, although specific repositories will be unavailable while they are being upgraded.
This will give access to the latest Subversion features for all repositories.
We will be starting this process at 15:00 UTC and expect it to take around 10 hours to upgrade all repositories.
Note: If you attempt to access your repository while it is being upgraded, it will fail.

We're going to be bringing the repositories down temporarily for a migration. I'd expect the downtime to be less than an hour and will start within the next 10.
Update: We started a few mins late, but we're doing the final catchup sync now. We'll be done shortly.
Update: We're waiting on the final sync to finish, then we'll be turning services back on. Sorry for the delay.
Update: We're complete and back online, please report any issues with any repositories.

Some of you may have seen this added last week. In the footer of the site, there's now something that says "Revision XXXX". Well folks, that's a recent changes log. You can see this by going to kb:Recent Changes. Now you can track what's been fixed or added to the site. Feel free to check it out!

Recently we became aware of a needed change in how we've been handling payments to international authors.
While we'll still not need to withhold anything, we do need to start collecting a W-8BEN for any Non-US Citizen who wishes to redeem more than $600 worth of points a year. More information can be found [[kb:store/tax-information/|here]] and [[kb:store/international-taxes|here]].
Nothing has changed for US Citizens. We still need a valid W-9 on file if a US Citizen wishes to redeem more than $600 worth of points a year. More information regarding this form can be found [[kb:store/domestic-taxes|here]].
I hope that these knowledge base pages will help people understand more about why we need these forms and how to get them to us. If there are any concerns or questions we'll do our best to address them.
