The English Wikipedia is currently being backed up every few
days on an irregular schedule (read that as "whenever I think
about it").  I plan to write a cron script to automate that a
bit, but I haven't gotten around to it.  There are copies of
the database on the server itself in San Diego, and a few on my
server in San Antonio, and maybe a few with other people who
have downloaded tarballs.

I know nothing about the non-English sites--those are still
on the old server.
