WP-CLI build process regularly failing because of throttled (?) WordPress.org requests

In the last month or so, WP-CLI's build processes have regularly failed because of (what I believe are) throttled WordPress.org requests.

Here's a classic example of a failed build:


The build failed because installing the WordPress importer is a pre-condition of the import tests. Installing the WordPress importer doesn't normally fail — and the problem is almost always fixed by restarting the build.

However, restarting the build on every pull request isn't even a short term satisfactory solution. It's really annoying to have builds failing all of the time because of unrelated issues. I'd prefer not to implement a hack workaround though. What can be done to improve the reliability of our connection with WordPress.org?

Chatted with Barry some on Skype. Apparently there is some strong correlation between traffic spikes and API failures on WordPress.org right now. He made some changes to hopefully mitigate the API failures. I'll follow up in a few to several days to report whether I've seen any improvements.

This is still a problem. Any ETA as to when there will be new hardware in place?

Barry doubled the servers. This seems to have solved the problem nicely :)
