Captions are scheduled to go live tomorrow, Thursday 10 January, between
15:00 and 16:00 UTC. The time window may change at the last minute, and the
team my hold the deployment (or roll it back) if last minute problems
occur. Should that happen I will keep you all informed, and I'll see you
all at the IRC office hour tomorrow.
