On Monday morning I'm intending to switching the existing nominatim
service over to an updated code base designed to allow better scaling
and additional data sources (tiger, external postcode sets, etc) as
well as being the first stage of various other improvements.

With any luck the only externally visible difference should be in
improvement in US search quality, however it is possible that there
will be some other minor differences. If you spot any problems please
email me or contact me on IRC (twain47).  In particular please let me
know if you spot something that used to work and now doesn't.

The new service is currently a couple of weeks behind on data but
catching up rapidly - I'm expecting it to be fully up to date by the
end of the week and once it gets there is should be able to handle
updates more quickly and reliably.
