Thank you.

It is somewhat of a known issue; cygcheck -p sometimes times out for me
too, and AFAIK the cause is package-grep.cgi being too slow.  Some of
that might depend on how busy sourceware is at that moment; the fact
that repeat attempts are faster makes me think that is a result of

Given that we're still working on getting all the infrastructure tasks
under control, optimizing package-grep.cgi would be the only short term
solution; once again, PTC.

In the long term, if were going to drastically change the package
database, IMO it should be in a way that would be used by the website,
cygcheck, and setup*.exe.  A sqlite database comes to mind (as yum uses
one); there are already mingw*-sqlite packages in Ports, and the website
could use DBI and DBD::sqlite.  This is *really* in the realm of PTC
