I fully agree with the above.

My question is ( my worries are) : What to do next?

Where I in the subject line asked for a technical workaround,
is my need more a social need. I know that I should care about
my own bussness, but I have trouble with focussing on that
now there is a gap in the d-i team. (Filling the gap with
Sven with his current state of mind will time-bomb the project.[1])

So could a d-i member say or confirm something like
 "it is free software, the good code will survive"
 "the short term problems are acceptable,
  we have time to find a solution"

(Consider that mangement speak to calm down
 the disturbance on the workfloor.)

So when we are back to work and there is actual
source code at http://alioth.debian.org/projects/freedi/
how will we be interacting with the "Free d-i project"?
