Yesterday TLU could reach CTAN's server but not Norbert's, hence the wheel that kept spinning. Today TLU can reach both servers, the order in which they appear in the log being immaterial.

Sorry, that was my failure. I made permanent redirects to https for all
service, and messed up a missing /, so some request just got hosed due
to the wrong redirect url. FIxed it soon after I got up and could think
straight again ;-)

There is already a timeout AFAIR...
