We are using a limited static environment to provide downloads, so end-users of
Apache OpenOffice and other projects can still download just fine.

The Extensions and Templates sites will be a top priority as best we're able to,
when we start to bring things back online.

The current downtime for Extensions and Templates and the rest of SourceForge
was not planned.  The datacenter and other recent changes have been announced on
https://twitter.com/sfnet_ops and going forward if we have planned maintenance I
can notify this list directly.  We're not planning on changing datacenters again
though :D
