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.

devel/scons: Upgrade 2.3.0 => 2.4.1 and reset maintainer

While the maintainer has mostly been responsive since July 2010, his
actions were limited to approving PRs (mainly to upgrade scons because
the maintainer wasn't doing it).  Not a single update originated from
the maintainer himself.  Since being a gatekeeper isn't the purpose of
a maintainer, I'm going to reset the port on this timeout so that future
upgrades can get applied faster than they have been.

Python's subprocess module has a race condition: Popen() constructor has a call
to global "_cleanup()" function on whenever a Popen object gets created, and
that call causes a check for all pending Popen objects whether their subprocess
has exited - i.e. the poll() method is called for every active Popen object.

See for addition details

SCon's compat/ module is just a copy of a more recent
stock Python modified so it will work with older Python

The attached patch will add locks around calls to Popen and change
the compat module in a way that the subprocess module is always used, no matter
if Python already ships one.

The rationale behind this decision is that there are many Python versions in the
wild with different Popen() race condition problems.
