I am only coordinating with the Mac OS Forge to the extent that I report problems to that email address, and then after a few days I send another message asking for a response to the first message, and so on.

My guess is things are no more fragile at Mac OS Forge than they've ever been, but in the past we've had an admin who was actively looking after things such as making sure disks don't fill up, letting us know about planned downtimes, and also responding in a timely manner when we report outages and other issues.

I don't see any improvement with the buildbot today. The buildbot master was brought back online a week ago, but the Snow Leopard and Lion buildbot slaves continue to have corrupted MacPorts registries (possibly due to their disks filling up) and the Mountain Lion slave has a Subversion exception.
