Update has been performed. Total time was less than 5 minutes. I told you all I'm a horrible duration predictor: I think 6 months of work will take 15 minutes and a 5 minute update will take an entire day.
Just a quick note to let everyone know that "sometime" over the weekend Voat will have to perform a few updates and some much needed and overdue maintenance. We will have to take Voat offline during this process. I’m planning on perhaps a few hours but we all know how good I am at accurately predicting the timeframe on these things.
For those that are interested:
This work is being done in preparation for a new version of Voat that contains the framework(s) needed for various upcoming features. I will post to v/voatdev with more details after the updates are completed.
P.S. Had to take some snapshots just a minute ago and it’s always quicker when the site is disabled. Sorry for not giving advanced notice. Somehow I feel I should blame it on @Atko but I'd have to make up a reason.
