Someone please tell me and the others how to get access to that one? I
can't seem to find an email or wiki page telling about this.

No, that sounds about right.
This is what happened, I think. flubber was down. Someone did a commit
for `community/scolobb.mdwn' in the web-interface. This change was
recorded in the web-interfaces's working copy, but obviously not pushed
to the flubber master copy, it being unreachable. In parallel, someone
did push a commit for `community/scolobb.mdwn' to the flubber master
copy, when it was available again. When doing that, this change was
automatically tried to be pushed to the web-interface's working copy,
creating a conflict in there. Apparently ikiwiki was not able to resort
to some sane state (how would it, nevertheless).
To sum up, I have now simply committed the conflict markers in
`community/scolobb.mdwn', as I was not trivially able to resolve the text
to what it was meant to read. Sergiu can hopefully sort this out easily.
Everything is in synch again.
I hope to (and really should) find some time during the next days to go
through all the other emails, please bear with me.
