In order to run a new gravitational wave search on LIGO open data, we are putting the ongoing all-sky gravitational wave search on hold. In part this is because some questions have surfaced related to the de-jittering used in the preparation of the LIGO O2 data. These must first be understood. We will of course make the fullest possible use of the results obtained so far.
