I’m starting this now. svn.webkit and build.webkit will be going down shortly.
I’ll send an all-clear email when things are back online.

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.

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.
