I think it's fate. The 500 errors are symbolic of how cumbersome it is 
to get accurate information.

Or perhaps it's karma. All the users swearing and banging their fists 
out of frustration with the Codex has tipped some metaphysical scale 
enough to effect the server hardware...

Seriously though, there is some great information in the codex but it 
needs a serious going over. I have tried myself, and the first edit I 
did I screwed something up and didn't even notice it (luckily some kind 
individual did notice it, fixed it and let me know). That's about the 
time I started putting 'guides' up on my own site out of frustration 
with the same questions over and over again (in the support forums).

Someone needs to make a decision about the main page/index design/layout 
and then the layout of the actual pages (including date written, 
applicable WP version(s), etc., etc.). Navigation needs to be 
simplified, more luser-friendly. Then hand out topics to volunteers who 
are savvy about that topic.

That's how I would do it when they make me emperor of the universe.
