[Box-Admins] Source.squeak.org Down

With Chris Cunnington's assistance I believe source.squeak.org is back
up and running correctly.  We spent a while trying to figure out what
went wrong but ultimately ended up just restoring the most recently
backed up images/changes and restarting it.

The backup is only about 5 hours old so hopefully nothing was lost. 
That said it was noticed that the most recent addition to the inbox
(Morphic-kb.619.mcz from Balázs Kósi) has no corresponding
notification on the packages list.  The entry in SqueakSource for it
seems to be fine and the mcz in the file system tests find with unzip -t
as being a complete zip file.  So it seems the server failure occurred
at some point while sending the email notification, which is not to say
it is actually directly related to sending the notification.

Anyway, if you have done anything on source.squeak.org today, it's
probably worth a few minutes to confirm it was not overwritten by
restoring from backup.
