We have temporarily moved the website to http://www2.mapserver.org/ and the DNS for the main address (http://www.mapserver.org) has been repointed to that instance.  It will take at least 6 hours for the DNS to update, and you can use the www2 address in the meantime. 

Um... unless I'm mistaken, that's the same machine that also hosts the
downloads... which means we cannot release 5.6.5 until it's back up.

Does SAC have a plan B for the downloads.osgeo.org service?
