The release engineering team has procedures and requirements that go beyond what the MeeGo-IT team can support. These procedures and requirements predate the existence of the MeeGo-IT team itself. We have a very good understanding of what the technical
issues are that have been causing the downtime. We are working to resolve the issue. In the mean time if you have concerns I will be happy to come the the MeeGo-IT team meeting to discuss it. I won't be available next week but can be available the week
after. In the mean time, the responsibility for this server is release engineering's.
