Is there a defined maintenance window for the list?  Has it been 
published?  Will users be impacted by this change? If so, I am not sure 
I am comfortable with the server being unavailable on a Friday night.  
We're still using the service at 10PM.  Has anyone performed a risk 
analysis of this change?  Is it truly necessary? Can we move it to 
Saturday morning in the wee hours, or preferably Sunday from midnight to 
6am Central?  Is it possible to schedule a call for later tonight prior 
to the maintenance window to consider the options?
