The machine was restarted today morning. We are sorry for the downtime.

We need to migrate R-Forge to a better equipped system in order to 
improve reliability. Back then in 2007 when we designed R-Forge we 
didn't expect so much interest like we observe now (>2600 users, almost 
900 projects). Thus the current system is quite undersized compared to 
its responsibilities.
