It's not yet enabled/listening on that interface so please bear in mind 
there's nothing to see there yet.

A MySQL dump would be nice to start out with, sure.

I suppose with DNS and the server being moved and the new wiki, people are 
bound to hit some sort of trouble anyways. Arguably, this is the kind of 
trouble one should avoid on a Saturday evening, maybe by stepping away from 
the keyboard ;-)

However, I do not have any objections against flipping the switch some time 
before 22:30 -it's just that since this service window is here, it seemed like 
a nice window to reduce the pain for everyone.
