Did it recover on it's own? Or did someone do something
to bring it back?

This is a fairly serious problem.  In the past, you questioned
why anyone would want to implement their own package indexes.
A major reason is reliability.  Personally, I'd prefer that there
be only one package index, but it has to be very available, at least
the parts that setuptools uses.  PyPI is great, but it needs to
be much more available.

I'll refrain, for now, from making suggestions, although I really want to,
because I haven't had a chance to study the current implementation.
