The reason for 2 servers is we test on the test box and it is also a
training system for those folks just learning subversion.We have very strict
security issues and have to maintain 100% uptime in production whereas the
test box is crash and burn more or less.

If an upgrade crashes we might affect other production applications, we are
talking thousands of apps. in daily use.
