 The plugins directory got out of sync somehow.  Some of the servers
 thought they had only synced up to svn rev 7k (HEAD is currently > 300k),
 so were stuck processing (really) old commits instead of new ones.  I'm
 not sure what caused the bug, but I've added a sanity check to prevent
 something similar from happening in the future.

 The servers are resyncing now, but it will probably be a bit more than a
 day before they get back up to speed completely.

 We're looking at reworking how downloads are processed so that no syncing
 is required at all.  That change isn't going to happen right away, though.
