What is happening? Individuals can now subscribe to receive IT service announcements, maintenance/outage details, and other related messages from IST’s Communication team, directly to their inbox.
About these messages: Communications from IST are generally published in the Daily Bulletin, posted to the IST website and social channels (Twitter and Facebook), and shared via email with faculty and administrative support units through IT support representatives and service desk contacts.
The topics of these messages vary, but may include IT service updates, planned or unplanned maintenance/outages, IT event and consultation opportunities, and new communication resources (e.g. websites). By subscribing to the email@example.com mailman list, individuals will receive these messages via email; subscribers will not be able to choose the types of messages they wish to receive.
Please note, this mail list is meant to be a new option for those that are not already subscribed to an IT mailing list (e.g. isthd, admin-support, faccus, etc.).
What if I have a question about a message I receive? Individuals are encouraged to contact their local IT reps for additional support. Support requests may also be submitted to the IST Service Desk, firstname.lastname@example.org or ext. 47951.

At this time, API version 3 will no longer be supported, and any code still dependent on functionality specific to API version 3 will stop working.
When is this happening? From Monday November 18, 8:00 p.m. to Tuesday November 19, 8:00 a.m., git.uwaterloo.ca will be unavailable during the upgrade window.
