Hi, in the last week I noticed that reducing buildout's socket timeout to something relatively low (3-5 seconds) made a lot of buildouts go much faster.
It looks like various package metadata points off to bad servers that hang. I haven't had a buildout fail on me because of setting such a low timeout -- I only got annoyed when running with the longer default. I wonder whether it might be an idea to lower the default in general?
