We're using InstantCommons. I don't know if there's any problems related to
that, but we are having some tech problems. The members-db has been giving
404 errors since at least Friday (ironically I discovered it when I was
trying to update Andrew's (our volunteer sysop) membership status) and the
committee's email address commit...@wikimedia.org.au has also been down
since last week. We've notified Andrew but I don't know what's happening and
the regularly downed email addresses is starting to be a really big problem.
