Is F-Droid infrastructure having problems right now?

I’ve noticed that download speeds are super low and the main website is down, is the F-Droid team having problems?

im used to ISP level blocking but i dont understand why the repositories are still blank in my emulator image

i can confirm that this is censorship 100%

This is not censorship.
f-droid.org points to multiple IP address in round robin, some of it is having issues.

$ host f-droid.org
f-droid.org has address 149.202.95.241
f-droid.org has address 148.251.140.42
