Slavek and I are working on getting this resolved ASAP.  This is one of
the few areas on the main site that really doesn't need to be on the same
systems as the rest of the services, and as such it should be fairly
trivial to get a replacement up and running.  However, I want to make sure
it's done right instead of fast and sloppy, so it might be a little bit
before it goes live.

Thank you all for your understanding,

Tim
