We are about to perform the DNS changeover to migrate to the new bootstrap repository. The new repository is keeping everything at the same paths so there should be no interruption when your local DNS starts resolving to the new location.

#### Changes to repos.ros.org
* User facing:
  * InRelease files are not currently being generated. We are investigating the issue but as it does not prevent use of the repository we are proceeding with the migration as the existing host has a retirement deadline.

  * Empty repositories  for `hardy`, `jaunty`, and `karmic` have been dropped completely.

* Behind the scenes
  * The new repository is generated by [aptly](http://aptly.info) rather than reprepro and hosted via AWS S3.
