Comment (by Otto42):

 The number of versions you have is quite a lot. 46 of them, to be exact.

 The build process builds each of those as a ZIP, and this can start to add
 up when you have a lot of old ones. If the process takes too long, it can
 time out and skip building the updates to the page.

 Consider removing some of those old versions if they're not useful or
 needed anymore. They'll always be in the SVN history, so leaving them
 around for the release process isn't really necessary.

 Also, your readme.txt is up to 31k. It really should be no bigger than
 10k. Consider removing some of the old changelog information off into a
 separate changelog.txt file. Changelogs in the readme.txt don't need to
 include details descriptions of every change, but should be more of an
 overview for users of the plugin, so they know what has changed. Detailed
 changelogs for devs can be put into separate files.

 The combination of both of these will reduce the time it takes to update
 the page and increase the success of the update.
