Subject: SVN server problems
To: Apache Infrastructure <infrastructure@apache.org>

Putting an email on the infra list to provide an update (from a
spectator's point of view) on today's issues.

Minotaur, which is chiefly handling the SVN repository, Apache project
sites, people.apache.org sites and login@apache.org email addresses
had a kernel panic and was acting up after the reboot (errors on
commands that should not have errored).

Things were taken down for a memtest run and the static websites (not
the dynamic tcl.apache or perl.apache) were failed over to Ajax
(failover machine in Europe). The memtest passed, and the subversion
repositories are being checked for validity while also making sure
that an up to date backup of the svn repositories is made.

Minotaur is slowly being brought back online. Sometime tonight
read-only SVN will be re-enabled; and presuming things go well I
imagine read-write and unix accounts will be turned back on. Medium
term, SVN will be moved to one of the machines that Infra have
recently been getting ready.


As an aside. It's very impressive to sit on #asfinfra and watch the
infra@ volunteers dealing with such things. Half a dozen people have
juggled their schedules to spend a lot of today dealing with the
problem, and I'm sure they'll be putting many more hours in to get

So remember to say thanks in Dublin next month if you get the chance :)
