I sometimes get those errors myself, but I agree with Philipp they
should be local problems to our setups. But buildout should be able to
handle these kinds of problems more gracefully by default (perhaps it
does, but is not very clear about it). When I get one of those I don't
know which downloaded parts were affected and my reaction is also to
start all over again.

Thanks for that tip!
