So, as a some-what unofficial debian port, would it make sense to move to
-ports anyway? Would it make re-inclusion as a release port more likely?

Well, I guess Stephen have had other stuff to worry about during the last
weeks as well. ;) 
Adding some keys in a bunch shouldn't take that long, IMHO. If he's still
overloaded with other work he should seek for help. As far as I followed it,
Stephen offered his help and agreed to make the changes if he got the power. 
And it wasn't the first time we're waiting for weeks/months to get some keys

How likely is it that those have more interest in helping m68k?

When the persons in charge don't tell you anything about their status at
all, it's their fault. When they would communicate something like "Oh well,
I'm quite busy at the moment... it could take some days, please remember me
next week again when it's not done until then..." or "I'm busy, please
contact $foo instead..." it would make everyones life easier.

It would even better if $someone would take appropriate action to finally
give us back w-b access. No matter who that $someone actually is!

*grmpf* :-(
