I tried clicking on the linux kernel repository link when I saw the
announcement and I think I got a 404 error or something and then tried
the viewcvs link. The viewcvs link gave a Python backtrace mentioning
an out of memory error as far as I remember.

Couldn't think just be a case of not enough BDB locks in
repos/db/DB_CONFIG? I seem to remember that causing out of memory
errors. Maybe some other values in DB_CONFIG need to be tweaked.
