Why was the website so slow for so long?

The cause of the slowdown was a change to the ZFS dataset. In conjunction with the database server, very little caching was being done. This combination resulted in increased disk I/O as the system churned through the database. Details in the blog post which outlines the various things which changed. Many graphs.

Add LOCALBASE/share/man to the valid path for manpages

Also compress manpages in this location.

As a followup of a discussion which occured in 2017:
And following:

All the supported FreeBSD version now supports share/man in manpath for
LOCALBASE As a result the ports tree can now accept it for manpage, but
more over migrate to this new path. Resulting in more consistency now the
manpages in base and ports would be in the relative path (under share/)
and a reduced amount of patching needed to port something to FreeBSD

Note1: this has already be done for GNU info pages earlier
Note2: due to the fact that for end user no functionnality will change during
the migration of the manpages to the new location and to avoid massive rebuild
of packages, it has been decided to not bump portrevision when migrating.

Install texinfo files (GNU info) into ${PREFIX}/share/info

After a discussion on the mailing list on moving manpages to
${PREFIX}/share/man for consistency with base where it is
installed in usr/share/man, it appeared the same should happen
to GNU info files which were installed under share in base and
not in ports.

Now texinfo is not in base on any of the supported version of FreeBSD
it is possible to proceed to this move and it is easier to do than
the manpage change.

Other benefit than consistency are less patching: all build tools but
cmake are expecting info files to be under share/info and cmake (patched here)
was having an exception for BSD so the patch makes FreeBSD case less
specific for them

Bump revision of all impacted ports

Register a 'tests' directory under /usr/local.

This mimics the layout of the base system (see hier(7)) and will be used by
ports to install tests into.  This directory will later be hooked into the
/usr/tests test suite so that all tests can be run transparently in one go.
