A quick status update on the situation:

 * No additional damage has been discovered; at the current
   time we are cautiously hopeful that the compromise was
   limited in scope.

 * ftp.gnome.org is back on now that we have additional
   confidence in the integrity of the tarballs.

 * We've now restored a number of services running on a 
   replacement machine

   - Websites including www.gnome.org, and developer.gnome.org
     are back up in limited service; dynamic content is still
     off so some parts may be inaccessible.

   - planet.gnome.org is again providing all your favorite
     blogs and gossip.

   - Bugzilla is in testing mode; we hope to restore general
     access in the next day.

Thanks for your patience; we'll continue to provide updates
as we move back to fully operational status.
