The https://dumps.wikimedia.org web interface for downloading various
dump files is currently offline. The rsync service for external
mirroring is as well. Local network NFS consumers may or may not be
working depending on which server the consumer is attached to.
This unexpected outage is the result of hardware issues following a
short planned maintenance. We are currently investigating the root
cause of the outage and will post additional updates as they become
available. Thanks for your patience.

> Hoping to get a quick reply.
