Congratulations on getting the first OOPS!  The page normally loads in 2 
seconds or less so I suspect you were just unlucky to hit a busy period.

Let me clarify - this feature is NOT intended to replace MoM, at least not 
yet.  The primary focus is to help OEMs and Linaro.  We've released this beta 
as a means to get some useful feedback from people who know more than we do 
about building a distribution.  I also hope it's actually useful to someone.

We will add a syncing button next week as well, which will let anyone who can 
normally upload a package just sync it right in the UI with no upload needed.

Thanks for any feedback guys.
