Hello Folks,

I plan on updating the svn repository from version 1.6.11 to 1.9.4 tonight. I will likely start this process sometime this late afternoon. svn.webkit.org <http://svn.webkit.org/> will be down during this time. I will also be taking build.webkit.org <http://build.webkit.org/> offline, so our bots do not fail due to a missing svn server. 

I will also be taking this time to upgrade the backend datastore on svn.webkit.org <http://svn.webkit.org/>. This process requires a full svn dump/load cycle, and takes a significant amount of time. I expect the the server to return online Sunday by end of day.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
I’ll send another email before I take the servers offline.

Since then, there were 3 significant releases of Subversion, which brought lots of performance improvements, most importantly brand new HTTP protocol [3] and storage format improvements [4]. Also, since 1.7 Apache 2.4 with MPM event is supported, which may increase server throughput.
