There have been many problems on upgrade for the cases where we gave in: shared libraries were missing after the upgrade (for Zope), the software wasn't available anymore after the upgrade (in case of manually-install Python pacakges), and so on.

What's the preferred way of offering help with infrastructure problems, and to what extent, in your opinion, is the solution to have more hands on deck vs. farming out certain (groups of) services to different machines?
For volunteering with infrastructure stuff, you can just speak up on the proper mailing list: either pydotorg or tracker-discuss (the former is a catch-all while the latter is specifically the issue tracker). And for people who are PSF members there is an infrastructure committee that I chair which handles the big-picture issues (e.g. choosing the issue tracker, server purchases, etc.).
