Status and Maintenance Record
The wiki's software is up to date. It's running very slowly and has been for a long time. There are exactly 1 gazillion spambot accounts. Ok, it's actually 149,292 total accounts, most of which are bots. I tweaked the removeUnusedAccounts.php script.. took out the check for logs. Ran and deleted ~146k accounts.
..and why is the memory usage so high?
