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

Use PY_FLAVOR for dependencies.

FLAVOR is the current port's flavor, it should not be used outside of
this scope.

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

The Double Ratchet Algorithm is a protocol (similar to OTR) that provides for
perfect forward secrecy in (a)synchronous communications. It uses triple
Diffie-Hellman for authentication and ECDHE for perfect forward secrecy. The
protocol is lighter and more robust than the OTR protocol - providing better
forward and future secrecy, as well as deniability.

The protocol was developed by Trevor Perrin and Moxie Marlinspike. Its chief
use currently is in the Open Whisper Systems Signal package.
