Debian Project machine downtime

The Debian hosts ftp-master.debian.org and db.debian.org will both be unavailable until after the weekend.
As reported on Debian Administration and the mailinglists, those two hosts wil be down for the weekend. Debian Administration sums it nicely together:
Quote:

This means that there will be:

* No new packages added to the Debian pools.
* No ability to lookup developer details in the database.

If you're running Debian Sarge, or Woody you need not worry this doesn't affect you.

Hi,

As previously mentioned[1], newraff and newsamosa have lost their
existing hosting and are being relocated.

They've now been shutdown and are in the process of being FedEx-ed
back to HP. Because a) that shouldn't take long and b) our inability
to have a completely up-to-date backup[2], we've no plan to
re-activate these services on other hosts in the mean time.

This means that until Saturday (at the earliest) or Monday (at the
latest), ftp-master and db will be unavailable.

Thanks to all the offers of hosting we've received so far and I
apologize for not having had the opportunity to reply to you all
individually yet. Now that the machines have actually left, we'll be
moving forward in terms of making a decision about where they'll end
up.

[2] Due to various uninteresting and hysterical reasons, we weren't
sure when exactly they were going to be shutdown.
