Because they aren't aware of the progress being made or the intent to 
make more?

Here's one (you didn't say they had to be past messages <wink>).

Is your position that PyPI isn't down/very slow on occasion or that when 
it is no one complains?

My team has lost many man hours to PyPI begin down/glacially slow.  This 
isn't meant to disparage PyPI though, if it weren't such a great thing 
it wouldn't be important to us.
