The DDoS attack against GitHub

I suspect that message is unnecessary, but I did want to make sure everyone involved is aware of the ongoing Distributed Denial of Service attack being levied against GitHub. The engineering staff at GitHub have been battling the attack since Thursday night. We've experienced periods where we were unable to push code, and we're using GitHub Pages to serve the live version of our site, and that has been periodically affected as well.

I'm hopeful that they'll get free and clear of this soon, but I think it's reasonable to expect the attacks to continue for some time.
