Re: [NOTICE] Impending shutdown of download.cloud.com - this may affect your CloudStack installation


I have not heard any complaints, although from the access logs I see lots
of attempts to download legacy templates.
download.cloud.com will remain offline until April 30.
On April 30 2018, download.cloud.com will be decommissioned permanently.
