I have restarted the apache process; when I checked just now it was  
clearly hung.

Lately the server has been experiencing abnormally high load, and we  
are devoting resources now to transitioning services from it to the  
new hardware at conference.scipy.org.  Today I will start working on  
moving the mailman mailing lists over, and then I will coordinate with  
admins of individual subdomains to move the websites, trac, and svn  
repositories to the new hardware.

I know that the server issues lately have been frustrating, and  
appreciate everyone's patience.

For the time being I'll be monitoring the server more closely as I  
work on it, and will manually do a graceful restart if necessary.  If  
you continue to have problems with connectivity, please let me know  
and we can do this as a last resort.
