Works for me, but only very recently. OTOH, my posts to python.org mailing
lists started black-holing, so it's not like Python-Dev will actually see
this post <wink>. Here's a trace from my box (in Virginia); it may take a
while for recent routing changes to propagate:

They're getting an accurate view of current Starship support. So it goes.
Plans for better support *are* in progress, but for reasons that won't
become clear until later, you haven't heard anything about them yet.
