I'll see what we can do about a post on that. This particular event has been a bit outside my field, so I'm afraid I personally don't have all of the info at this time. I believe the goal was to fix it rather than post anything, but I'm sure the plan was to have it fixed a while ago.
I'll see what we can do about getting a post, preferably on the .org support forums, but first everyone is focussing on getting .com back under control, which hopefully shouldn't take too much longer.

>> Loudly seconded! This is causing major ill-feeling amongst users. They had no pre-warning of any changes, no official explanation after the event and there are no real solutions to the current problems that some of them are facing. Even an official "We know there are problems but hang on in there - we're working on fixing them" would go a long way right now.

>> In the case that you see "The owner of that API Key (user) is not on the access list for this blog (number)," the user should be told to use the API key of the original stats account owner or log in as that user and add the new user (the one attempting to access) in the Stats Access section on their stats page.
