I read this to mean that Infra has devised a way to support the live MW 
wiki satisfactorily. YEA!! from me, too. Well done, guys. I will post 
the outage notices Kay recommends as soon as I can, after confirmation.

noisy Nagios checks off and we have to report outages to ourselves. They
are usually responsive by the business day AM in US Pacific Time Zone.
