I'm not sure if you are aware of https://github.com/fepitre/snapshot-mirror
which is Frédéric's project to create a partial snaphot.d.o mirror so that
we can continue our work on reproducing Debian bullseye arch:and64 and arch:all
(these are the partial aspects of said mirror: only useful for reproducing
bullseye amd64/all).

and while I'm not sure how much Frédéric still needs those raw postgresql
tables (on which he'll surely respond)... I'd like to add another request:

would it be possible to whitelist his IP so it doesn't get
throttled when accessing snapshot.d.o?

Currently his work is available at http(s)://debian.notset.fr/snapshot
and goes back until November 2020. We plan to go back until the oldest 
package built for bullseye... and then, we plan to add another mirror
of that data which will have better ressources than Frédéric's mirror @home.

Thank you for running snapshot.d.o! (Even though it's too limited to be
useful for Reproducing Debian :/ ;)

A single bitcoin transaction alone consumes 621 KWh, or half a million times
more energy consumption than a credit card payment. The bitcoin network annually
wastes 78 TWh (terrawatt hours) annually or the energy consumption of several
