Is it planned downage, or what kind of emergency maintenance? Service unavailability appears to be recovering unstably.

[edit] About help.openstreetmap.org, not www.openstreetmap.org

It happens from time to time. I had brought that up on Github a while ago but the admins claimed be unable to help at that time.

Strangely, I have never experienced this until yesterday.

There is no one "website" when you connect to openstreetmap.org you will be served by one of the five frontend servers which in turn connect to 5 backend servers (some of these are located in the UK some in NL), which in turn connect to a master and a couple of replica databases.

What you may have seen could just be a hiccup with one of the frontend servers that nobody else has experienced, without details definitely nobody will be able to help you.

I'm guessing that it might have been about the help site itself :)
