Just visited, and even the home page had borked layout
and an "under costruction" heading that probably doesn't
belong there (linking to a co.cc site).

I thought new-www was an experimental (mostly static) 
preview, copied long ago. Has it now been updated? Can 
users log in to both wikis? Has new-ww been checked for 
intrusions, given the long preview time? How are the two 
wikis kept in synch? 

Could you please give a few more details about the migration 
schedule and tooling (eg, what automated testing/diffing is in 
place? how does it fit in with the other server move schedules?)?
Is there a central page linking to all migration schedules?

Not that I'm not looking forward to a more stable haskell.org
experience - I'm just a bit surprised about the sudden move,
and I doubt our chances to verify the move without tool
support (some spider that separates content from layout
before applying diff? followed by crowd-sourced manual
checking with tool support for marking suspicious and
checked pages, perhaps?).
