Crates.io is down

Do we have any estimate on when it's likely to be back online?

Edit. The status has been updated: The Rust Programming Language Status - crates.io unavailable

In the meantime you may be able to find what you need on lib.rs.

I couldn't find any info on lib.rs for how to configure cargo to use it instead of crates.io. Is that supported?

Ah, crates.io is back now. Not a big outage in the end!

You can't have cargo use lib.rs. What it would allow you to do is browse the site in your browser when looking for info on crates.

lib.rs has no crates on its own. It's a search front-end for crates.io crates, so you don't configure anything. These are the same crates.
