I'd say unrelated. The Holodeck server does indeed need maintainence from time to time, and I also kind of doubt they'd be doing any Season 2.0 configuration prep changes until they get a build of Season 2.0 actually up and running on Tribble; and can analyze just what caused all the problems they've encountered in pushing it to the Tribble server (Remember, right now, and until Season 2.0 is running on Tribble - Tribble and Live have EXACTLY the same build running.)
Well, I'm hoping they fix a new bug on Holodeck that just came up since I started playing on Tribble for the first time earlier today; there's chat from a chat channel that keeps showing even when I turn ALL chat channels to off. I think it's the new Tribble Help channel. If it's still doing it after this maintenance, I'll be writing a bug ticket about it.
