I think it's possibly broken if two people try to update the manifest 

I suggest we upload a compressed version of the manifest for each push 
to master and have the w3c-test.org sync script download that (e.g. by 
runnng ./wpt manifest, modified to try to download where possible) on 
update. Then the runner page (which, if many things depend on it could 
really use a committed maintainer) can avoid generating a manifest at all.

Patches to make manifest generation faster are welcome, of course.
