Unsupported Build Image message today rather than November 15th?


I’ve got this message on some of my project’s failed build today:

11:03:57 AM: Build ready to start
11:03:57 AM: ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  The build image for this site uses Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus, which is no longer supported.

  To enable builds for this site, select a later build image at the following link:

  For more details, visit the build migration guide:

Which is suprising considering this build deprecation has been massively advertised as happening on November 15th?

Has this date been advanced? Is it a glitch?

This used to be the warning:

DEPRECATION NOTICE: Builds using the Xenial build image will fail after November 15th, 2022.

The build image for this site uses Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus, which is no longer supported.
All Netlify builds using the Xenial build image will begin failing in the week of November 15th, 2022.

I just read the blog post… okay they would error today every 10 first minute of the hour… My bad for not seeing this sooner… But a lot of people have scheduled build CRON jobs starting in those timeframe.

We are aware of the build update and have scheduled those in our pipeline, why the disruption of our normal workflow before November 15th? I understand this is a mechanism to make sure people are aware, but this creates more problem than the initial build deprecation itself…

my own two cents.
