Dev.rubyonrails.org is sad

The state of dev.rubyonrails.org has been depressing for at least a few
days now (perhaps longer). Rather than bitching about it, how might we
help? Can whomever manages dev.rubyonrails.org let us know here where
we might send hardware, cash, etc., so that our favorite framework can
have a decent home?

Thanks,

Good idea, I have some PayPal funny money which I could send their way.

A major attack on the root DNS servers began day before yesterday. It
continues.

As reported on cnn.com
http://www.cnn.com/2007/TECH/internet/02/06/internet.attacks.ap/index.html

According to the reports, the attack’s primarily focused on the
organization
that’s responsible for the .org domains.

Rather than bitching about it, how might we help?

Excellent attitude, dude!

Best regards,
Bill

Hrm, I doubt that’s the problem. I’m able to get a lookup just fine,
but after that, it just crawls. If it was a DNS issue only, then
lookups would be slow or timeout, and after that the checkout would be
fast.

Is there any information on this. I agree that it’s a good attitude
that I’d like to also go along with, is there anything that can be
done to help?

The machine serving Trac and Subversion has been pummeled since the
1.2.xrelease. So many folks rely on svn:externals for local
development,
production deploys, and plugins. Textdrive, our gracious host, are
addressing the issue.
