The CAcert signing server went down at 16:00 UTC 27th June 2009. It is expected that this event is similar as what happened on the 18th of June. So it is expected that the certificate signing will be on service again at 19:00 UTC.
The CAcert signing server is needed to issue signed certificates so this part of the CAcert services is halted now to say about 19:00 UTC.
As this is the second time the hardware went down for unclear reasons, Oophaga will be asked to replace the hardware (the hardware is “dated”). If someone wants to donate a reliable rack PC (hardware requirements are small: today Intel processor, 1-2 Gb mem, today 2 disks of say 200 Gb and usb) that would help.
