Unfortunately the server is still down.  I have very limited access to
it myself at the moment and HTTP access is completely shut down.

This episode has convinced me that it would be quite handy to have a
mirror of [haskell] somewhere, one that ideally also could take over
as the main site in moments of need :-)  So, if you happen to have a
server that could host [haskell] (and in the future maybe also a
[haskell-testing]), then please contact me off-list.  The total space
requirement (at the moment) is 362M (i686) plus 368M (x86_64),
unfortunately I don't know how much bandwidth it uses, but my guess is
that it's rather small.
