I keep getting: "Request failed with status code 408" when I run expo publish

When I run expo publish I get the following error:

Uploading JavaScript bundles
Request failed with status code 408
Error: Request failed with status code 408

Note: this command was working a few hours ago

Hi @makaveli96

I got the same error, but it worked when I tried again. So it seems there’s an intermittent error.
There are also some people with old apps having trouble fetching updates at the moment.
