--- Comment #2 from Dave Cottlehuber <dch@freebsd.org> ---
feedback from github:

> The error is due to a large number of tags on the repository in 
> question. We expect that a large number of tags is exceeding the 
> maximum object size allowed in the internal cache, so the tags are 
> likely being fetched from the repository; this is an expensive 
> operation that is likely contributing to the request being timed out.

there we go! I don't see anything we can do further here, and Dmitri
already provided a neat improvement to the port I originally ran
into this issue, so closing.
