I just wanted to post a quick status update for how things stand now with the MDN documentation wiki.

The site is generally working well, aside from the cosmetic issues I posted about previously. There is one technical issue: the site is periodically crashing. We don’t yet know why, but an active investigation is underway. A script is running every few minutes to check the status of the server and restart the wiki if it’s crashed. This is not a solution, of course, but it will at least keep the site usable until we figure out what’s going on.

It sounds more than a little ridiculous to say, but I will anyway: other than the occasional crash, the site is working much better, I think, than it was prior to the upgrade. Once we get this crash sorted out, I think we’re going to be in good shape compared to where we were a week ago.
