The server that hosts GNU and other projects, savannah.gnu.org
had a catastrophic failure over the weekend. A message
in the savannah-users mailing list describes the problems with a RAID array which eventually led to filesystem corruption. This took out the source code repositories for the projects hosted there.
"The last backup was performed while RAID was buggy, and lots of files
were reported missing, in particular for CVS/SVN/Git/Hg. Hence the
last backup is incomplete.
And, our last full backup from tape is from end of April. Normally
tape backups are more recent, but there were independent backup
issues. We've not discussed since in detail as we're focusing on
recovering the data asap.
