Hi there,

I guess most of you have noticed that the *.gimp.org services had not been 
available yesterday.
In fact, everything was running just fine, but it wasn't reachable - the 
gimp.org domain had expired on 2015-08-03, so www.gimp.org, download.gimp.org 
and irc.gimp.org didn't resolve to an IP address.

If this happens, the domain registrar changes the DNS entries to point to a 
different IP.

The domain has now been renewed, and the DNS is updating to the correct IP 
address. Depending on how long this takes for the DNS server you are using, you 
might still see the "Domain not activated" message for some time.

If you are puzzled by the technical terms in the part above, you#ll find an 
explanation of DNS at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_Name_System 

If you are looking for download mirrors, you can grab them directly from the 
downloads list source file:


(lines starting with a # are commented out and do not appear in the currently 
active list, this is either because those mirrors might not be up-to-date, or 
that I didn't get around to enabling them again [besides merely commenting them 
in again, this also involves setting up rsync access for them])

P.S. yes, our website is stored in version control - meaning that contributing 
content via patches is possible
