Pydocweb currently has no named host.  You can usually reach it at
http://sugarlabs1.xen.prgmr.com/ .  Some thing got screwed up during
the downgrade from rawhide to f10. It is currently down.

api.sl.org is still up.  It is currently being served from my shell
account.  The static epydoc html files are generated via a cron job on
sugarlabs1 and then sent via sftp to my shell account.

I started running these services from sugarlabs1 because they require
jhbuild and I didn't want to add all of those dependencies to
shell.sl.org.  For maintenance reasons, it would be hand to have the
api services centrally located.

I had a good talk with Robert McQueen the other day.  As long as we
continue to move forward supporting OLPC and increasing the number of
Sugar Deployments on other distros, Collabora with continue to work
with us.  I believe they feel, the marketing and RandD benefits of
working on collaboration with Sugar Labs out weigh the costs
