Dear all,

Several members of the community have provided us with offers of help as
systems administrators. Thank you very much for your help, with
particular thanks to Matthew Brett who helped us recover from the outage
in May.

Unfortunately, we've been unable to find anyone who is interested in
hosting KnowledgeForge on an ongoing basis.

As such, and as planned, we'll be turning off public access to
KnowledgeForge at the beginning of next week: August 4th.

If people need help extracting data or have specific requests for URL
redirects that you'd like us to operate on the knowledgeforge.net
domain, please contact me directly.
