We've had a series of issues with our production infrastructure,
some of which should rightly be blamed on me, since my second (third?)
job is to run the pkg(5) infrastructure.  The pkg(5) team is actively
working on these issues.

We made some changes on Thursday in response to the original
issue the poster mentioned on July 2, and things seemed to be better.
The initial problem was created by operator error on my part-- I thought
I had applied a critical fix to a python module, but in fact had only
done the "dry run" of the patch.  This had the knock-on effect of
reintroducing the horrible 408-errors-of-doom problem we've had
in the past.  For more, see 

Subsequent to that, we've hit a new round of issues, and we've
only partially root caused them.

This was all compounded by my absence over the holiday weekend.

Finally, we know that people want offline zone installation.  We've got
a roadmap which points in that direction, and we're trying to get there.
