DSA is well aware of the problem. The root issue seems to be that they
are lacking hardware to host UDD on its own storage (which was the
agreement when Zack authorized the funding for the current UDD hardware
in 2011-ish), so the storage is shared with munin.d.o, which has a
write-heavy/sync-heavy workload.

At this point, I would no longer find it fair to put pressure on DSA, as
I'm no longer sure that I'll find the motivation to work again on UDD
even if that is fixed.

You are flooded because things are failing. If you ignore those mails,
you don't know it's failing, and it doesn't get fixed. It's a vicious
