It should have been just moments, however, things went horribly, horribly

etc. It's been one of those days.

Tip: if you are using svn:// or http:// for mirrors rather than https://, you 
can use "svn://" or "" which are 
geo-dns routed and fail over in about 90 seconds if one server goes down.

(https:// won't work reliably because they have different ssl certs on the 
backends. We'll fix that, but not today.)
