SourceForge Experiences Lengthy Outage
Developers working on open source projects hosted by SourceForge will have a while longer to wait until they can use all of the service's features. Last Thursday, the SourceForge site experienced a filesystem corruption on its storage solution, which led to an outage for both SourceForge and its sister site Slashdot.
The SourceForge team says it has "been working 24×7 on data restoration, data validation, and service recovery" since the incident. Some of the data has been restored, but the service is still not 100 percent operational. The organization said, "We’ll be bringing services back online as the validation of backing data is completed, and anticipate bringing additional services online through mid-week."
