  •  Commonspot 6 and Firefox

    Friday, Apr. 20, 2012

    The hourly schedule for replication has been revised again. Here's where it stands now:

    Replication starts on the hour, between 6am and 8pm.

    Replication packets are applied on the www servers between 10 and 15 minutes past the hour.
