Since the new box doesn't appear to be ready in time for a direct 
replacement, I've cancelled the cancellation so that we don't break any 
workflows that depend on a fast build box being available.

Also, since apparently some people appear to be storing some specific 
config on dragon, we'll transfer home dirs once the new box becomes 
available but we'll perform a cleanup beforehand (such as cleaning .cache).
