Yes, I have seen this message afterwards and I can understand that Infra 
does not inform all the projects which are affected. But, in my opinion 
Infra should had informed at least the PMC chairs directly, because 
nobody can expect that a project first searches the ASF Infra mailing 
lists for relevant information. I felt more worse than Arthur Dent when 
I got notice about this scheduled outage regarding our release.

Best regards, Oliver.
