I noticed one and a half hours ago that the site was in a "read-only" state for some time for some sort of "maintenance". Was it just periodic maintenance? If so, what is the maintenance schedule? If not, what exactly was wrong?

    They periodically make the site read only so the mods can conive evil plots in secret! >:D

https://twitter.com/StackStatus would be the place to check. Assuming it was ~7 hours ago it looks like there was some testing going on

    At the time I posted this question, I was in an environment in which Twitter was blocked. stackstatus.net didn't show anything about it, either.
