Timothée and I are working on fedora-packages-static. It's a lot simpler than the old packages app, it just generates static files that you can serve. The old packages app was missing packages and would time out if an external service took too long to respond. This approach eliminates those problems by not having the web server do that work on demand. Because these are just static files, search will need to be managed by something else (E.g. YaCy, Algolia). I have generated an example page and put a link below.

Can we perhaps decide which way we want to go and look at deploying
something soon? This has been more important since we didn't move the
old broken packages app from the old datacenter and people keep asking
about it.

We could wait until we have staging back, but I don't think we need to
wait for that to decide what we want to do here?
