you haven't fix the perms for sourceball yet:

errors occured during run:
svn: warning: Can't open file '/root/.subversion/servers': Permission denied
svn: warning: Can't open file '/root/.subversion/servers': Permission denied
/arch-test/cron-jobs/../misc-scripts/make-sourceball: line 81:
/var/log/sourceballs//cloog-ppl: Permission denied
gzip: /var/log/sourceballs//cloog-ppl: No such file or directory
        Failed to download source for cloog-ppl-0.15.7-1 (core-i686)

You need to give sourceballs users rw perm  in /var/log/sourceballs.
Also the current sources in  /srv/ftp/sources/ have these perms:
-rw-rw-r-- 1         546 ftp-arch

You'll need to fix their perms if the sourceballs user isn't in the
ftp-arch group.   You might also want to fix the svn warning if it's
easy. It might be inoffensive but will clutter the logs.
