WebSVN will be shutdown, and the subdomain removed from DNS.
This also happened for back when KDE migrated from cvs to svn.

It should not be a problem to extract the revision from either the url
or Bugzilla comment and use that to access the svn repository.
The svn repository will be kept online in a read-only state for the
most part, accessible via svn://.
