Sadly one of our servers suffered a bit of an oopsy yesterday evening at
around 1745 (see URL below), which required us to go to one data centre
to pick up a spare server and then go to another to install it. It
should all be working now (as of around 2130). For NetSurf, the machine
handled mailing lists, website, and git.
Please let me know if there are any outstanding problems.

down heat sink on the south bridge failed, probably due to a combination
of age, stress, and thermal cycling.
I was in the midst of adding RiscOS to the Wikipedia article about
system clocks. (Which began because I wanted to know what the "epoch"
(which apparently is the jargon term for the clock's notional zero) is
for various operating systems.)
In the article's History section I added "[[BBC Micro]]" to the
existing examples of 8-bit computers, which were all American. The
square brackets in the Wiki source language indicate a link to another
Wikipedia article. So I displayed my edited page and then
Adjust-clicked my new cross-reference to check it in a new Netsurf
window. It was correct, so I didn't wait for the page to finish
downloading and simply closed the window.
Netsurf crashed. Log is here:
Also notice that upon relaunching Netsurf intending to go back to that
Wikipedia page, it unfortunately does not appear in the Netsurf
history list under "today", so I will have to repeat my search.
Using #2124 on Iyonix 5.18.
(I'm posting this here because the Netsurf bug-reporting system says
it is down at the moment.)
