Thanks for the status report.
I had logged off of pkgbox right when I read your first message about the
downtime. (So it was working this week :)
As far as I know, nobody else is using it. I am using pkgbox for two
things: pkgsrc development and as a very useful resource for comparing and
reviewing code for the various source trees. I was planning to also use it
for doing documentation builds (handbook to PDF or HTML).
