Hey, team lead for the Standards Foundation infrastructure team here.

The server that handles XSF web (,, and chatrooms ( went down early on 2020-03-20. The cause is currently unknown, we are awaiting a response from the hosting provider.

Meanwhile we have already restored onto a new server from our latest nightly backups, and other services will follow as soon as possible.

Please be kind to everyone in these difficult and disruptive times!

Website ( is now up and running, including the XSF blog and XEPs. XMPP service itself to follow!

@bluszcz thanks for the offer, we're currently good! Our email lists and our DNS remained up, which helps with coordination and migrating services.

Just a matter of installing packages and getting the affected services running again now.
