  <h1>Status of XEmacs Services</h1>
  <p>
    This page, which is mirrored to all XEmacs sites, provides
    information about known problems with any of the services provided
    for developing (CVS or ftp down), downloading (ftp or www site
    problems), and using (ftp or www site problems) XEmacs.</p>
  <p>
    If you can't reach this status page at <a
    href="http://www.xemacs.org/About/XEmacsServices.html">http://www.xemacs.org/About/XEmacsServices.html</a>,
    you may try <a
    href="http://www.us.xemacs.org/About/XEmacsServices.html">http://www.us.xemacs.org/About/XEmacsServices.html</a>

I'm sorry, the server has been down for about 8 hours for a
major software upgrading (and of course the procedure to keep the
cluster up during the upgrade did fail)

The service is restarted now. Please let me know if you notice any
problem.
