Yes, so briefly the downtime was caused by a failed upgrade which had DB issues. Infra was
essentially trying to avoid loss of historical data. The upgrade was from 1.5.5 to 1.6.7,
which upstream considered to be a major upgrade, and there have been lots of reports of upgrade
problems based on a brief perusal of the mailing list. So not a stability issue per se as
much as a failed upgrade.
