I've just upgraded the machine hosting forums.debian.net from sarge to etch. As a result, also the forum software is now updated. If you encounter any problems, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, again my apologies for the dowtime during the christmas holidays. Right before leaving my home, a harddisk crashed, and I couldn't get it replaced before 31st of december last year. Now everything is up and running again, and the RAID has been fully rebuilt, such that any subsequent crash will still not result in any lost posts.
Happy new year!
