Here are some of the changes to the Mozilla Developer Network site in the week and a half since the recent doc sprint.
We had a snafu for a few days last week when a server crashed in the middle of a move of the DOM reference hierarchy, causing many DOM reference pages to apparently disappear. That situation has now been fixed.
We have a recurring issue with the wiki software, where the syntax highlighting extension fails to load, causing an error message to appear in place of code examples. While we wait for a patch to be backported by the vendor, we have a script in place that detects this situation and corrects it. While you might still occasionally see those error messages, they should be less frequent and persistent than previously.
