Hey future Kovan validators,
We are ready to make Kovan hard fork to apply a new validator set into which you are included. The planned HF date is 15 May 2019 (block number
10960500). It means you need to up and synchronize your nodes before this date.
The corresponding pull request in the Parity repo: https://github.com/paritytech/parity-ethereum/pull/10628/
Please follow the instruction: New Kovan Node Setup & Configuration
If you encounter some troubles doing that, please post your questions or details here: https://forum.poa.network/c/kovan-testnet/validators-support-private
