A few hours from now on Thursday May, 2013 0300 UTC, Bitbucket will be unavailable for up to 30 minutes to perform emergency maintenance.
This morning’s brief outage was due to what has been discovered to be a faulty component of Bitbucket’s datacenter networking infrastructure. This networking equipment must be replaced as soon as possible to avoid further unexpected outages.
We apologize for the sudden nature of this downtime. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
