Hi Geni (and all)
We have moved to 1.35.4 (the latest LTS version) this evening.
I think it's fair to say that the old site was the result of many years of
incremental upgrades and changes which were making it difficult to maintain
and do major or minor updates in the usual way. Upgrades to PHP also had
the potential to affect Wordpress, so that needed to be evaluated. Our IT
contractor has therefore created a new site with a fresh configuration and
set of extensions, which can be updated as needed.
I understand the frustration that has been expressed over the past few
weeks about Wikimedia UK's IT infrastructure. This year much of our focus
(including time, energy and development budget) has been spent on creating
and launching our new public-facing Wordpress-based website, which is here
<https://wikimedia.org.uk/>. I'm sorry if that has meant less attention has
been given to maintaining the wiki site. I do appreciate the community
drawing attention to some of these issues, and your interest in ensuring
that our IT is fit for purpose.

Thank you Sam, I've been on annual leave
while I moved house but I did
mean to email back to say that our IT contractor was looking at it. I will
now pass on the gentle nudge! Best, Lucy
4 weeks; Still reads version 1.31.0. Which presumably means you also
missed the 16 security and maintenance patches on this version. I
understand that you might prefer a gentle nudge but this is very much the
point where you fix it now or admit you can't maintain it and pull it.
