I know the announcement is sort of written in such a way that it seems to link the Selos/Povar merger as the reason that all servers are going down for 24 hours... but that doesn't pass the smell test. Distributed systems have been a thing for decades now, so why should all the servers have to come down just to merge two nearly dead servers? Must be more going on that hasn't been announced yet? I mean if they need 24 hours then have at it, but I'm just curious why it was included seemingly as an afterthought? I would think a 24 hour downtime would warrant an announcement all by itself so people can plan ahead.
