From our administrator:
TACC outage took a bit longer than expected but is now completed and we are in the process of returning Galaxy Main (http://usegalaxy.org) and Galaxy Test (http://test.galaxyproject.org) to full operational status. We now estimate that the servers will be back up in 2-3 hours as we are also performing a system upgrade/replacement during this time. Related Tweet. We will post another update once the servers are back up!
Bug reports do not need to be sent in for jobs that failed during the downtime.
Once back up, any terminated/failed jobs that were queued or in an execution state during the downtime should be rerun. In some cases, this may include upstream input uploaded datasets and/or jobs. Jobs rerun after the servers are back up, resulting in a failure, should first be reviewed for usage/data issues (as all failed jobs and their inputs should be) and any persistent issues can then be reported for feedback. Please be aware that many end-users will be re-running jobs and queue times may be longer than usual.
One important upgrade is that FTP Upload has now enabled FTPS. This method utilizes SLL/TSL for secure file transfer (note that FTPS is different from SFTP). In general, changes to your chosen FTP client are not necessary yet you may wish to modify the client to enforce FTPS transfer and verify certificate authentication. Full details are included in a how-to video posted here in a tweet.

Thank you for your patience and for using Galaxy!
