GitHub is moving to Rackspace Jump to Story

GitHub will be moving their servers to Rackspace this Sunday, September 27th at 5PM Pacific time, and they expect to have less than an hour of downtime. Public and private clone, fetch, and pull operations will work just fine, but push operations, and the github.com website, will be disabled. After the switch, your first SSH operation to the new GitHub IP address will throw a warning, but you shouldn’t have to make any changes to your configuration. GitHub Pages CNAME users will need to change their DNS records to reflect the new IP address, 207.97.227.245.
