Welcome to Gentoo, a highly flexible, source-based Linux distribution.

Unexpected database server downtime, affecting bugs, forums, wiki (Nov 27, 2021)

Gentoo logo

Due to an unexpected breakage on our database servers, several Gentoo websites are currently down. In particular, this includes Forums, Wiki, and Bugzilla. Please visit our Infrastructure status page for real-time monitoring and eventual outage notices.

Update, Dec 5, 2021: The outage, apparently caused by a subtle bug in the depths of MariaDB and Galera, should mostly be over. Our infrastructure team is watching the database servers closely though.
