Throughout this outage, https://www.cloudflarestatus.com/ continued to show green - all services operational, with almost all services marked 'operational' and some vague cryptic message about users in this region being affected:

Investigating - Cloudflare is observing network performance issues. Customers may be experiencing 502 errors while accessing sites on Cloudflare. We are working to mitigate impact to Internet users in this region.

It seemed very much like a global outage affecting all services. Is this status page not automatically updated with service status, or is it just manually updated by humans? Even if manually updated, surely when posting that status message, the status of all the services should be set to degraded?

This is not my experience, I have received many updates both through email and updates to the cloudflare status page throughout the incident, except for possibly the first 10 minutes

You're probably talking about the yellow note at the top of the page (which is still there, with a little more detail now). That was updated and is fine.

I'm talking about the service indicators for each service lower down the page, which remained green throughout and appear to be just decoration, not an actual indication of service status, they all said operational throughout the incident (I reloaded a few times).

In particular I'm thinking of the Cloudflare Sites and Services section.
