The IP change was made as part of fixing the issues we had two weeks 
back. Sorry for the troubles, at least I was not aware of that this 
might be important.

We're now working on making the site more stable and it will mean one 
another move once we have it prepared, configured and tested. We'll try 
to make sure we let people know about the upcoming change ahead of time. 
Will one week notice on this mailing list be fine?

Yeah, I guess this mail should be used only for internal admin messages 
and we should change this suggestion to this mailing list.
