So I received more information. The problem was solved around 0h20, and
then, Lot Oasis people worked all night to fix servers ( as there is
several customers there, as well as their own servers, and those of
numerous group ( zarb.org, tuxfamilly.org, globenet, ffii.org, etc ). 

Perenoel told me that he will take care of valstar this afternoon, and
according to damien, that's just pushing one key of the keyboard as the
bios is buggy. We are preparing a blog post to explain this ( basically
a corrected version of this mail )

So far, there is no impact on release date if server is back quite fast.
We will again see if the situation change.

Do not also hesitate to direct people to my previous mail if they have
question. I didn't want to sent a copy everywhere, but I also do not
want people to feel forgotten because we didn't warn them.
