We put a request in to iron mountain for projectofedora.org earlier this
week. For some reason, they made the changes to fedoraproject.org. If
you 'dig ns1.fedoraproject.org' and get sections with "theplanet.com" in
it, this affects you.
Because we do not control your dns servers, (or the planets) there is
little we can do about fixing it quickly. The problem has been fixed but
the cache in your DNS may not be corrected. re-run the command
If you see a section like:
;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
fedoraproject.org. 60799 IN NS ns2.theplanet.com.
fedoraproject.org. 60799 IN NS ns1.theplanet.com.
Look at the number in the second field. thats how many seconds remain
until your services refresh and you start hitting the correct dns settings
again. In the meantime you can access fedora services via /etc/hosts and
looking up ip addresses via http://www.dnswatch.info/
Sorry for the confusion / trouble. I honestly have no idea how we could
have prevented this since "projectofedora.org" isn't even a typo away from
I'll talk to our primary Iron Mountain contact and
see if they have any ideas.
