The import has been suspended because it failed 5 or more times in succession.

Asked by Karl Ellis

 today I try requesting an import for lp:webcamstudio source code daily builds, but it fails with:

2013-12-17 19:26:30 INFO Starting job.
2013-12-17 19:26:30 INFO Getting exising bzr branch from central store.

Import failed:
Traceback (most recent call last):
Failure: twisted.internet.error.ProcessTerminated: A process has ended with a probable error condition: process ended with exit code 1.

I don't know if it is my fault, i didn't configure the ppa and i can't contact the person who made it.
I usually commit source changes on WebcamStudio google code only.
I try requesting others imports but all fails with the same log. Now i see the message "The import has been suspended because it failed 5 or more times in succession. ".

There was an issue with our internal network. That's fixed now, and the import is succeeding again.
