lkml.org unavailable after new kernel release

Linux kernel 2.6.28 has been released, adding exiting new features like a memory-manager for GPUs and support for ext4.

It seems like the new kernel attracts quite some traffic because I get this notice when I try to look at the extensive changelog:

The server is taking too long to respond; please wait a minute or 2 and try again.

via lkml.org.

Is that a good sign because Linux is popular, or bad because it shows that the servers can’t handle a large amount of traffic?

(Third possibility: it’s a coincidence.)
