We've determined that the code used to display recent blog posts on the python.org homepage was attempting to call out to resolve `legacy.pypi.org`, which was included in a recent blog.python.org post... however that service was shutdown this morning.
The blog post has been pulled to keep it from being rendered and we're working to determine what codepath was causing the timeouts.

We are working on determining the issue more closely. A networked resource loaded on the homepage is causing timeouts.

The internal network that connects our load balancers to the servers running python.org's code is experiencing an outage. We are working to resolve the issue.
