As some of you may have noticed, has been suffering somenunreliability problems: usually what happens is that SpamAssassin causes it to exhaust its memory and become wedged.

I've recently taken over administration of from Peter Naulls, and my first job is to fix this. As part of this process I also intend to move hosts, as part of a longer-term plan to partition services over different servers so this becomes less of an issue.

I intend to do most of this work in the background, but it will entail a certain amount of disruption so various databases (SVN, wiki etc) are kept consistent. Due to limited time on my part, I may have to schedule some downtime at relatively short notice.

I'm intending to start this process this weekend, and should be assumed to be vulnerable over that period. There's currently no external server status page, but I'll update:
as I go.

If there's any problems, do email me.
