Hello Noel,

As I understand it the volunteers were indeed working very hard ahead of
the problem to resolve the issue. I think the news article misses some
parts of the official notice from the council (which can be found here:

The team had been working on and getting ready to move to a new hosting
facility. There was time available but due to the server mistakenly
being taken offline things became more urgent. See the following extract
from the council's email:
