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 Public Domain support to ports license framework. You can now use


Note that although Public Domain is not technically a license, it's
handled in the same way as licenses here, which is a common practice
(Arch, Gentoo, Fedora, Debian, even FOSSology do the same).

Convert all ports which redefine Public Domain LICENSE to LICENSE=PD.
