Hi Folks,

As you may have noticed, we experienced an issue with the Wiki database this morning. Regrettably, this put us in the position of having to rollback to our daily backup from 12am this morning (Monday, November 16th, 2009). Bringing the wiki service back online was complicated by synchronization issues between the cache and database and then further complicated by a zombie process that wouldn't release the necessary resources.

What does this mean?
Any changes that were made to the wiki between midnight and approximately 11am may have been lost during this incident.

We apologize sincerely for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

Thank you for your patience and understanding,
The Wiki Team
