If the Fedora magazine was having issues last night this is why. I did not get any emails or text messages so I assume if it did go down it was brief.

Subject: large number of OpenShift Online gears restarted

Hi, all.  This is just a heads-up that due to an unfortunate conflict between one of our automated scripts and a configuration change that was pushed last night & today, approximately 25% of all the gears in OpenShift Online were killed and restarted today between the hours of 2 AM and 3 PM, some of them multiple times.  I would not be surprised if we see an uptick in support issues resulting from this.  If you need further details on exactly what happened or whether a particular app was impacted, feel free to raise an issue, but the problem has been resolved, and we do not anticipate any further such incidents.
