AFAIK, the Extension Manager was paying no attention to the schedule setting for product-update
checking, as set on the Options page.

I forwarded your comment to Lance Albertson at OSUOSL - you can reach him through the email
I have quoted elsewhere.

I am thinking that we should distinguish between websites for general use by humans and web
services that are expected by the application.

This is going down frequently, is it a self-inflicted DDOS? Do any forks or down-streams also
query extensions.s.oo.o and/or templates.s.oo.o?
