* Communishift is unfortunately offline until mid to end of June. The guys hit some unfortunate roadblocks which cost us a lot of time and energy. As we are starting to bring up hardware in IAD2 for the reduced Fedora offering next week, the hard but necessary decision was taken to pause bringing up CommuniShift in RDU-CC for now and come back to this once the *slightly* more critical work is done or close to complete in IAD2.
* Thank you for your patience, this is a colossal undertaking for the team and your support and understanding is very much appreciated.
* Full amended schedule is here https://hackmd.io/vDwoayVLQ8yjyDk3PDvC8A?view
