Advance warning of scheduled systems work and downtime

February 17th: Degond cluster upgrade

Starting today with the lax node, the Degond compute cluster is being substantially upgraded to the latest long-term support Linux version 20.04 along with updated applications and packages. This work is being done piecemeal as and when cluster nodes are free of running jobs and is expected to be completed before the end of February.

No other work is scheduled for the forseeable future
