Gitorious 2.4.1 was just released

Thanks to Steffen Forkmann the first patch release after 2.4.0 came really quickly this time. There was a bug in the 2.4.0 code preventing push from functioning properly.

We’ll need to take down the servers for ~15 minutes the coming Thursday (October 25th) starting at 1PM CET to do another shot at migrating from our old SAN infrastructure.
