It's out of disk space. The images are using over 600GB already, not 
including image tarballs which will require that much again. Also I'm 
out space for text, srv31's 230GB is full. The project really needs 
either a dedicated 2TB or some software changes to reduce disk usage.

So in answer to your question, I was intending on waiting until the new 
image servers arrive. Then I could try to grab one to finish the present 
dump. Then I would do the software changes and run the subsequent dump 
on a lower-specced machine. I don't know when the image servers will 
arrive, but we're all hoping it will be soon.
