Bug Description

To cope with the new world order for ddebs, ddeb-retriever is going to need to use Archive.getPublishedBinaries(status="Published", created_since_date=threshold, ordered=False) to catch up with recent binary publications. Unfortunately, this is very slow right now; I've been trying to use 2015-03-15 as a fairly arbitrary test threshold (not remembering off the top of my head exactly when the qastaging database was last restored), and I can't get that to not time out on qastaging.

Example timeout: OOPS-4a160fb13a4f966d24123318cd4c46eb

I think it would be sensible to index BPPH.datecreated to speed this up.

12:08 <cjwatson> wgrant: I'm giving up on the StormRangeFactory bit for now. I do actually now have something that appears to work - haven't tried with launchpadlib, but the next_collection_link entries have elaborate-looking memos with full dates in them. The

12:08 <cjwatson> Maybe this is fixable with a DecoratedResultSet or something, but I've run past the end of my timebox for this.
12:10 <cjwatson> I'll just push up something today that implements order_by_date without that.
12:11 <wgrant> cjwatson: I think launchpadlib is a bit magical, since it supports slicing.
12:12 <wgrant> But yeah, SRF for the default sort order is awkward.
12:12 <wgrant> (and pointless, since it can't be sorted by an index)
