I'm happy to inform you that the new servers arrived in amsterdam. So we will
soon have an extra toolserver for OpenStreetMap stuff, as well as the two
production map servers - and a bunch of other shiny new stuff for the toolserver.
It will be a while until all is installed and set up. Full functionality is
expected to be available after the next regular maintenance window, july 6th.
Some parts may become available earlier, but we are out of room in our rack, so
we can't set up everything before the new rack is ready.
We'll keep you posted

"In Trento, the headquarters of the Fondazione Bruno Kessler, the

June 5 and 6. It is the first conference of the Italian Open Street
I will point out for two reasons:
1. OSM will be "integrated" into MediaWiki, and therefore the maps
will be usable on Wikipedia
2. Wikimedia Italia is sponsoring the conference"
Has anyone heard anything about this, reached out to them, or
considered going if they're nearby? :-)

Just a quick update on the order for the three servers to be used for OSM
things: the order is out, but servers won't arrive before May 25th. And it's
possible that there will be another week of delay, or even two. I will let you
know when I have more details. Please be patient for a little longer.
