How do you test a dependency without changing it? How do you test a
dependency that is unreachable?

It seems to me you are arbitrarily limiting this discussion to
problems installing software on production servers. This is not
reasonably real-life limitation. If a server is unreachable, it is
unreachable even if you aren't installing production software on a
server. It's equally unreachable if I need to download something for
testing on my local machine.

That's now all the energy I'm willing to spend on discussing this
topic. Third-party hosting needs to go. I believe there is a broad
consensus on this. Let's instead discuss *how* to implement it.
