isabelle-server.in.tum.de is the canonical entry point for ssh etc. as 
has been pointed out already.  It runs some funny Gentoo Linux, which is 
totally different from everything else.

The classic macbroy2[0-9] hosts were back into proper shape in the past 
couple of weeks, but just a few days updated again to use "rolling 
releases" from some semi-official repository of OpenSUSE.  So the thrill 
is back ...

Myself I tend to agree with Mark Shuttleworth, who said about that 
question for Ubuntu recently, that "a rolling release is no release at 
all".  We are faced with constant decline of software quality, and I don't 
see a need to accelerate that.
