I got an error message on the site: "Our edit queue is full, try again in a few minutes", but that was the entire text of the page. Even though the Content-Type header I received was "text/html; charset=utf-8", the page was plain text with no HTML formatting. I don't mind that it was in plain text (actually I kinda liked it), but then the Content-Type should be "text/plain".

Also, the HTTP response code received was "200 OK".

This is bad! Because everything was not okay.

It was an error and should have a more appropriate HTTP response code.


Starting with the next build we'll properly return a 503 status when this case (or this other case) happen.
