Site Maintenance

From time to time, we have to take Launchpad offline for planned maintenance. We aim to reduce the inconvenience of Launchpad being unavailable by scheduling it for Launchpad’s quietest periods. You can find the list of planned outages on our [ maintenance page].

You can also subscribe to the [ launchpad-users mailing list] or our [ notifications feed] to get alerts of planned maintenance.
