Not sure I follow. What should I be looking for and where?

That check is in lib-common.php, which is needed during the upgrade process.
You can't really disable the site _and_ run the upgrade at the same time.

(I thought there was a feature request for this but can't seem to find it.)

The source code for that is in the "tools" repository
http://project.geeklog.net/cgi-bin/hgwebdir.cgi/tools/ - specifically,

It's basically a special version of the file submission code from the file
management plugin that's being called from Jenkins during the
geeklog-release job, after the tarball has been copied over from the other
server. It expects a file with the supplied name and md5 checksum in a
certain directory. If it can find that and the checksum matches, it's being
added to the submission queue.

(Side note: It's about time we replace the md5 checksum with something
secure and modern)

Long story short: We would need something that does the same for the
downloads plugin. I've never looked at that plugin's code, though. Maybe
someone who's more familiar with it could give it a try?

Also, while looking all this up, I noticed that our Jenkins has been down
for the last 6 hours and the server was being hammered by a stupid bot that
got tangled in the hg web view somewhere. Sigh. Blocked a few IP addresses
and that bot and everything seems to be running again.

And then I noticed that a new Jenkins version is available, but it requires
a newer Java version than the one we have on the server. Guess I have to ask
pair.com to install Java 7 for us.
