Hi Chris,

Thank you for submitting those bugs. I agree that it is a legitimate problem 
that needs addressing. However I strongly disagree with severity of those 
bugs. Obviously packages should not download anything during build for 
security and reproducibility reasons. But here post-build tests attempt to 
access internet which is relatively harmless in this context. Indeed tests 
trying to access internet from offline environment is hardly a "serious" 
problem regardless of what policy says.
Thanks to your bug reports we will eventually address and fix those problems. 
In the mean time this should not block testing migrations so I'm lowering 
severity of those bugs and I recommend submitting similar bugs with severity 
not higher than "important".

All the best,
 Dmitry Smirnov.
