What is happening? The University’s version control system, git.uwaterloo.ca, will undergo the second part of its two-phase upgrade, updating from version 10.8.7 to version 12.1.1. 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.
What is the impact? The new API (version 4) will become the only API offered by the application. The previous API (version 3) will no longer be available. No change to repositories, issues, comments or logins is anticipated.
What do users need to do? Users of the API need to ensure their code has been updated in order to work with version 4.
Questions, concerns or assistance needed? Please contact the IST Service Desk, email@example.com or ext. 44357.
