Looks like Anthill can't use serf, my logs show the same pattern
between yesterday & today. I know that the client config is being
picked up from the right place because use-commit-times is being

Here's what I'm seeing: - - [17/Jan/2010:20:56:02 -0500] "PROPFIND PATH HTTP/1.1" 207 736 - - [17/Jan/2010:20:56:02 -0500] "REPORT
/Repos/Code/!svn/vcc/default HTTP/1.1" 200 883378845

883MB response being streamed back to the client, I guess the default
5 minute timeout isn't quite enough sometimes.

The way I have things configured, Anthill is checking out a copy of
the project while Tomcat is finishing the deployment of the previous
build into its temp/working directory. Maybe these overlapped
I/O-intensive tasks are slowing each other down? Often the first build
succeeds, and subsequent ones fail. I'll have to try doing them
independently later today.
