The web site seems to not handle the nightly maintenance in a graceful manner anymore.

Tonight at 20h00 UTC, accessing messageboards just returned a completely empty blank page, without even any basic html formatting.

Shortly thereafter the homepage displayed only the project name and this error:
Unable to connect to database - please try again later Error: 2002Can\'t connect to local MySQL server through socket \'/path/to/mysqld/mysqld.sock\' (2)[Note1]

Normally, there used to be a graceful message indicating that the project is temporarily shut down for maintenance. It looks like that part of the web site is broken at the moment and itself in need of some maintenance. :)

[Note1]: Real path to mysqld.sock withheld.
