 This was originally reported to the Mac OS Forge admin email address, but
 some emails between Keith and myself may be getting lost, so I want to
 report the issue here where we can hopefully track and resolve it


 `Mon May 18 02:04:51 PDT 2015`: [https://build.macports.org/builders
 /buildports-snowleopard-x86_64/builds/35778 Ports build 35778] (trying to
 rebuild dmapd after r136473) failed with an exception because the builder
 went offline.

 `Mon May 18 16:53:38 PDT 2015`: The builder has not been attempting any
 builds since the exception was noted. I
 mgr/2015-May/005895.html reported this to Mac OS Forge].

 `Mon May 18 21:10:20 PDT 2015`: Keith restarted the server, after which
 the builder resumed trying to do builds.
 x86_64/builds/35779 Ports build 35779] failed because it
 x86_64/builds/35779/steps/write%20portlist%20file/logs/stdio could not
 write the portlist] because the SQLite registry database was corrupted.
 All subsequent builds to date have failed for the same reason.

 `Tue May 19 09:30:46 PDT 2015`:
 mgr/2015-May/005896.html Keith responded] that the server had been
 displaying a dialog box asking to be restarted, and that he had restarted


 `Tue May 19 17:14:44 PDT 2015`: [https://lists.macosforge.org/pipermail
 /macports-dev/2015-May/030566.html Ben Gilbert reported the problem] on

 `Tue May 19 20:16:54 PDT 2015`: [https://lists.macosforge.org/pipermail
 /macports-dev/2015-May/030567.html I responded to Ben] letting him know
 the above, Cc'ing Mac OS Forge. I wondered if the server had run out of
 disk space. I wondered if running a `port` command with `sudo`—such as
 `sudo port installed`—would repair the SQLite database corruption; I asked
 Keith to try it. I asked Keith to clarify the restart dialog box he had

 `Thu May 21 14:53:36 PDT 2015`: [https://lists.macosforge.org/pipermail
 /macports-dev/2015-May/030578.html I reminded Mac OS Forge], forwarding my
 message from May 19. I added that SQLite can repair some corruption if it
 has write access to the database, which it would with `sudo` but that
 generating the port list happens without `sudo`.


 `Sat May 23 13:32:55 PDT 2015`: [https://lists.macosforge.org/pipermail
 /macports-dev/2015-May/030594.html Dave Evans reported the problem] on

 `Sat May 23 15:58:24 PDT 2015`:
 mgr/2015-May/005913.html I reminded Mac OS Forge], forwarding my message
 from May 21.


 `Wed May 27 23:03:22 PDT 2015`:
 mgr/2015-May/005919.html I reminded Mac OS Forge] in a new email.

 `Thu May 28 13:56:04 PDT 2015`:
 mgr/2015-May/005922.html Keith asked if there was still a problem] after
 restarting the server.

 `Thu May 28 14:31:28 PDT 2015`:
 mgr/2015-May/005923.html I said yes, a problem still exists], forwarding
 my message from May 23.


 At this time I still want to know:

  * What was the nature of the dialog box the server was displaying about
 needing a restart? Was it a kernel panic or some other situation?
  * Did the server run out of disk space? If so, can we get 5-10GB
 additional disk space?
  * Does running `sudo port installed` fix the problem? If not, we need to
 come up with another solution.
  * Were my forwarded and Cc'd emails to Mac OS Forge perhaps not
 delivered, or discarded by a spam filter? If so, can we fix this so that
 communication to Mac OS Forge can occur unimpeded?
