What happens

Apparently today the Mediawiki API was disabled on English Wikitravel. See for example [1] which returns:

MediaWiki API is not enabled for this site. Add the following line to your LocalSettings.php
$wgEnableAPI=true;

I assume this was done to combat spambot issues. Will it be re-enabled?
