[Reportbug-maint] Bug#516449: reportbug: reporting build errors takes forever when buildd is down

Package: reportbug
Version: 3.48
Severity: minor


I tried to report a problem with a package that does not build, and
reportbug stayed on the "checking buildd" step for a very long time.

There is probably a long timeout on this check.

The server does not respond to http nor ping for me. bugs.debian.org
responds to ping.
