The server was overloaded and had to be rebooted. It is up now. It may not handle all of the slaves doing a svn checkout at the same time, but I'll keep an eye on it. Making the slaves not throw away their working copies when this happens would make my job easier. 

>From a backend hardware standpoint, I think using svn.webkit.org will give you better results than git.webkit.org on average. Plus I'd have to make sure the git syncing completed before sending the build event to the master, so it complicates the svn hooks which potentially slows down or prevents commits when something is wrong with git.webkit.org.
