We have temporarily increased processing resources on all background jobs to speed clearing. Queues are now clearing at a faster-than-normal rate.
To assist clearing, we have temporarily paused processing on ten (10) repos with an excessive number of jobs in queue and have notified the associated subscription email for each project. If believe you may have an affected project, you can check the email associated with your subscription; you will have already received a message from firstname.lastname@example.org
Affected projects will be un-paused and resume processing when general traffic has cleared by 80%. In the worst case, they will be unpaused at the end of the US PST working day, at which time they'll have relatively unfettered resources and should process quickly thereafter.
