Subject: Canonical Launchpad code import servers blocked due to abuse

The launchpad code import servers have been blocked from accessing for abuse. There were in excess of 1,000,000 requests
made to in the previous 24 hours and a couple of
instances in the previous few days of ~500,000 requests.

ASF policy permits no more than one update per hour from automated clients.

To request removal of the block (you'll need to explain what you have
done to ensure the abuse is not repeated) contact
<email address hidden> or find the ASF infrastructure team on
#asfinfra at freenode.
