I didn't know about this downtime until one of my group members emailed asking about the delay in receipt of email messages that were visible on our group's page.
I first checked status.groups.io where there was nothing to indicate this downtime. Next I checked GMF (nada) and the Beta, where I found this message. I thought Bera was the place to discuss potential improvements to groups.io and I get the Beta messages in Full Digest since (I thought) there was no particular need for speed in reading them. I was surprised that it was the place that this announcement was posted.
All of this is to say - is there a more expedient way for Group Owners and Moderators to be notified of anticipated #downtime? Is there something else I should be subscribed to?
Thanks much - we love groups.io and I just suggested it to the admin of a nearly-defunct Y group that I belong to.
