And then, why didn't they ask how they could help?

People can start all the projects they want, of course. It just seems
like a waste of volunteer time to work on competing projects.

Both. I believe it shouldn't be down, and I have no precise reports of
it being "very slow". Jim Fulton complained that it took 0.3s to
get a single package's page, which I cannot classify as "very slow".
