I agree completely.

As you can guess, my initial goal was just to get the entire UNNA
site online and 100% intact (luckily the community helped out to
pitch in the few missing bits of data!) The second goal has been to
get everything functioning again, but unfortunately the wiki won't
let anyone edit it at yet, so I'm rebuilding the software to get to
that point. Of course, no point in going half way if I'm only going
to have to upgrade it again to take it forward.

I time transplant might be helpful at the moment... or maybe a large
check so I can quit my day job. :)

That's the hope! At the moment there's a bunch of the software and
infrastructure work to get straightened out first, but then anyone
will be able to pitch in where they can (and want to) help.
