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.

    Affects: */py*
      Ports using Python via USES=python are now flavored.  All the py3-* ports
      have been removed and folded into their py-* master ports.
      People using Poudriere 3.2+ and binary packages do not have to do anything.
      For other people, to build the Python 3.6 version of, for example,
      databases/py-gdbm, you need to run:
        # make FLAVOR=py36 install

Convert Python ports to FLAVORS.

  Ports using USE_PYTHON=distutils are now flavored.  They will
  automatically get flavors (py27, py34, py35, py36) depending on what
  versions they support.

  There is also a USE_PYTHON=flavors for ports that do not use distutils
  but need FLAVORS to be set.  A USE_PYTHON=noflavors can be set if
  using distutils but flavors are not wanted.

  A new USE_PYTHON=optsuffix that will add PYTHON_PKGNAMESUFFIX has been
  added to cope with Python ports that did not have the Python
  PKGNAMEPREFIX but are flavored.

  USES=python now also exports a PY_FLAVOR variable that contains the

New port mail/py-afew: Initial tagging script for notmuch mail

Its basic task is to provide automatic tagging each time new
mail is registered with notmuch.  In a classic setup, you might
call it after 'notmuch new' in an offlineimap post sync hook.

It can do basic thing such as adding tags based on email headers
or maildir folders, handling killed threads and spam.

In move mode, afew will move mails between maildir folders
according to configurable rules that can contain arbitrary
notmuch queries to match against any searchable attributes.
