I have been discussing with upstream CI and having more reliable
repositories for delorean would help, as they hit the same issue.

Another solution would be mirroring delorean content somewhere else,
and have repo file pointing to the mirror. In case, delorean instance crashes,
we won't lose previous snapshots.
