We are currently investigating an issue affecting a small percentage of repositories on Bitbucket. We’ve temporarily placed the affected repositories into read-only mode while we are working on resolving the issue.

Do you have an estimation on how long will it take to solve this issue? minutes? hours? see you on Monday?

Thank you

Thanks for your reply.


Do you know how much time to resolve this issue?

Thank you for this update, it would be much better next time if you alert your customers about this kind of problem sending an email.

Hope it will not take too much time

Seems to work for me now

I'm too :)
