GitHub restores Mozilla-Central repository after temporarily shutting it down over fileserver issues

github 520x245 GitHub restores Mozilla Central repository after temporarily shutting it down over fileserver issues

The GitHub repository Mozilla-Central and all of its forks were disabled yesterday with no explanation. We got in touch with both GitHub and Mozilla after the problem was pointed out on Hacker News, and it has now been resolved.

“The Mozilla-Central repository has been restored after a temporary problem prompted Github to shut it down,” a Mozilla spokesperson told TNW in a statement. “This community-supported repository is not used for building any Mozilla products. All Mozilla products are built from Mozilla’s servers which are called hg.mozilla.org and git.mozilla.org. At no time was any of Mozilla’s production infrastructure impacted by this Github action.”

The issue was first pointed out as a submission on Bugzilla in the hopes of tracking down the root cause, and ensuring that the production replacement repositories would not run into the same issue. GitHub support responded at the time with the following information:

Sorry about that – our ops and systems folks are taking a look now, but it looks like the size and particularly unique nature of mozilla/mozilla-central are causing fileserver issues for us at the moment. The team is looking at options to resolve this and we’ll follow up as soon as we have more information for you.

We have also contacted GitHub for more information. We will update this article if we hear back.
