Pidgin 2.0 (previously gaim) released, victim of its own success?
Yesterday was the official release of pidgin 2.0 (used to be called gaim, an IM client that can speak AIM, ICQ, IRC, Yahoo! Messenger, MSN, jabber, etc.).  Today, its website (http://pidgin.im) seems to be unreachable (I was trying to figure out how to send a comment on a feature I like from gaim 2.0.0b6 that is missing in the pidgin release).  Is this a result of its success or a hosting issue or DoS?  I have no idea, I haven't heard back from anyone yet.
