The live install of nominatim has run out of integers on it's primary
key and the database is being updated to use bigint. Sorry for the
lack of notice - this rather caught me by surprise!
Until this is completed there will be no updates.
Because of the size of the database and the software changes needed to
support this it will probably take most of next week to complete - as
such the ETA for completing this work is 13th of June.
Apart from updates the service should operate as normal.
Anyone using the MapQuest NPI (pre-indexed files) will need to run an
update script to update the fields in their local database - I'll post
this as soon as I've finished testing it locally.
