[m-users.] Website downtime

Hi Mercury Users.

We have some planned updates for the Mercury website and the webserver in
general.  This will begin at 8pm next Saturday.  That's 20:00 AEDT Saturday
the 11th of January 2014 (9:00 UTC on Saturday).  If all goes well the
we should be back online within a few hours.

This interruption will effect:

    The website. http://www.mercurylang.org
    The bugs database. http://bugs.mercurylang.org
    The mailing list http://lists.mercurylang.org and
        listname at lists.mercurylang.org
    and any email sent to any mercurylang.org addresses.

It might also affect DNS resolution of mercurylang.org, but I'll do what I
can to mitigate this.  Likewise our backup MX should accept email and simply
delay delivery.

We also have other planned changes including moving the URLs for the mailing
lists and the bugs database.  These interruptions will be much more brief.
Depending on how the upgrades go on Saturday night I might do these the
following day.
