Now it is, yes. An apparent reason is one that can be found. Prior to
the sending of this mail, the reason was not listed anywhere and hence
was, indeed, not apparent. =)

It always seems a bit unfortunate when lots of stuff shuts down whenever
it's a public holiday in the U.S. It's a bit of a dead giveaway that a
lot of stuff is still performed only by Red Hat staff working in the
U.S. Obviously that's not your problem, just an observation. I'd love it
if there were a community member in Indonesia, or something, pushing
updates when it's 4am on a long weekend in the U.S. (I have not checked
if the timezones in my wild-ass conjecture actually work out :>). It'd
just give me warm community fuzzies.

(Before anyone yells, I know that this applies to quite a bit of QA
stuff too, sadly.)
