I'm not getting this though I note that the latest version of FF tends 
to be a lot stricter about invalid security certificates.

Yes, knowledgeforge was down :( but I've now brought this back up.

It seems to have gone down because of a permissions issue on the local 
kforge.log file (used by the python code for logging).



PS: Francis, given ukparse's heavy usage of knowledgeforge I was just 
thinking that it might make sense for you to have some kind of sysadmin 
access to the kforge machine. Much of the time when these things go 
wrong a simple reboot of apache (and/or a quick scan of the log files) 
is sufficient to correct the problem and these are things that anyone, 
in particular those without any special knowledge of how kforge works, 
can deal with. With sysadmin access you would be able to obtain more 
rapid resolution of these issues -- particularly when the OKFN sysadmins 
are not as available as they might be -- e.g. when they go on holiday, 
when it is 4am in the morning etc :)
