Also, so history on this so far. (See the official job ticket, too:

   * 7am-ish: went read-only with svn.collab.net/repos/svn; caught the
'svn-complete' repos up with 'svn' history (new commits + propmods); kicked
off the 'svnadmin dump' process. The wrong way.

   * 1:30pm: reported to asf-infra that the dump had completed.

   * 2pm: provided Joe (asf-infra) my cellphone info, "just in case".

   * 2:15pm: out the door with the wife.

   * 3:15pm: cell phone rings. It's Joe. Seems I botched the 'nohup'
command, and the dumpstream has stderr turds in it. :-(

   * 3:20pm: at wife's request, leave her in the store we're in, drive to
mother's house (closer than my own), let myself in, boot Mom's old Win2k
machine, ssh to svn.collab.net, and tar up the whole svn-complete repository
for delivery to Joe. Call Joe, apologize repeatedly, etc.

   * 4:00pm: pick up wife from the store, resume afternoon.

From what I can see in the IRC chatter, the second load attempt is still
going on right now. Sorry for the extended downtime -- fault lies entirely
on me, unfortunately.
