On Wednesday 27th of November 2013 between 17:30 and 22:00 (GMT / UTC)
the primary database server will be unavailable due to maintenance.

I apologise for the short notice.

The following services WILL be affected:
* www.openstreetmap.org web site WILL NOT allow edits (iD or Potlatch). [1]
* API will NOT allow map editing (using iD, JOSM, Merkaartor etc.),
but will remain available as read-only. [2]

Other OpenStreetMap provided services should not be affected - all of
the following are expected to function normally:
* Forum
* trac (bug-tracker)
* help.openstreetmap.org
* tile serving ("View The Map" & "Export")
* Wiki
* Nominatim (search)
* mailing lists
* subversion and git (source code repositories)
* donate.openstreetmap.org

G6 (Xeon 56xx) hardware.

1: Maps will still be viewable on the openstreetmap.org homepage and
on other people's websites.

available in read-only mode, but the API may be briefly unavailable.
