Hosting of biopython.org (and the bioperl.org and open-bio.org
websites) was transferred to an Amazon cloud machine over
the weekend, which fixed the wiki but temporarily disabled the
static pages (like the Tutorial and downloads). Those should
all be working again now.

At some later date (to be announced) the server running the
OBF mailing lists will be transferred, which would make the
mailing lists unavailable for a short period.
