Hello Arun! 

At Stamen we are aware that Field Papers has been down for a few days (at least the atlas generation part) and we're working on fixing it.

We appreciate how important Field Papers is to the OSM community, and we welcome ideas about how to improve its stability and to find resources to support it. We'd be happy to work with the OSMF, HOT or any other organization to apply for funds for further improvements to Field Papers. We also would love to find ways for other developers and support staff to get involved in the maintenance and improvement of field papers. If you (or anyone) would like to help, please get in touch!

We hope to get Field Papers back online very soon. Thanks for your patience, and we're sorry for any inconvenience!
