I’ve tried from a couple of networks as well as over Tor and I cannot
reproduce it.  Does it still happen for you?  (Specifically I used ‘guix
download’ or ‘wget’ with the URL above.)

> Is there a way to specify the timeout in guix?

The ‘ftp-open’ procedure in (guix ftp-client) does allow you to specify
a timeout when opening the connection.  In (guix build download), which
is what is used when running “guix build perl-datetime”, we specify a
default timeout of 10 seconds.  This timeout cannot be changed from the
‘guix’ command line though.

Thanks for your report,
