The PEG Wiki (http://wcipeg.com/wiki) is down for quite some time now although the main site (https://wcipeg.com/main) seems to be working fine. Does anybody know what happened to it? Is this something permanent? The wiki had some excellent articles which shouldn't be lost.

So I came up with this problem yesterday, which I couldn't solve. With a quick google search I found nothing relevant so I thought I could ask here for help.

The Problem

You are given a tree T with n nodes and an integer k. You are asked to find the length of longest path in T which has exactly k inversions. Here we define path inversions for a specific path P as the number of inversions in the array of the nodes visited in P, in that order. If there is no such path output  - 1.

Let's consider the above tree for example, with k = 2. The answer is 4 since the path 1 - 6 - 2 - 5 has exactly 2 inversions. Note that the path 5 - 2 - 4 also has 2 inversion however it isn't the path with the maximum length.

I am looking for solutions with complexity better than O(n2·logn)
Thank you for your time.
