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

- Pass maintainership of mail/notmuch and mail/py-notmuch to submitter.
- Update ports to version to 0.26.
- Unconditionally install completions according to Porter's Handbook Chapter
    without adding extra dependencies.
- Turn on the MANPAGES option by default. Building the manual pages is kept as
an option
    to allow for more minimal custom builds.
- Remove RUBY option as it never did anything. There are no build or install
    in the Makefile nor %%RUBY%% references in pkg-plist.
    Building with the RUBY option enabled makes absolutely no difference to the
produced package.
    The only thing ever requiring the Ruby bindings to the Notmuch library is
the Vim client,
    which isn't built either.
- Turn mail/py-notmuch into a slave port of mail/notmuch.
- Split off EMACS option into the flavor aware slave port mail/notmuch-emacs.
- Split off MUTT option into the slave port mail/notmuch-mutt.
- Perform miscellaneous cleanups.
