Hi all,

We have now sucessfully moved the search engine backend and
OpenSpending.org is back online. Thanks a lot to Nigel Babu for all his
help in getting this fixed.

We hope this will solve the problems we have been facing in the last weeks.

Thank you all who wanted to interface with OpenSpending in the last hour
for being patient and understanding.
