I hope the maintainer of those packages will be reactive.

I know Guillem is very busy, that could explain it has not answered to
those emails :-(

Releasing an etch based snapshot looks difficult, but doing a snapshot
of sid in time of etch release looks possible, even without the support
of Guillem. I can make a snapshot of the archive on my home machines,
but given they are on an ADSL line, it won't be possible to make it public.

The good news is that io.debian.net and hagrid.debian.net [1] will be
replaced by a single powerfull machine donated by Lufthansa [2] through
Debian to Debian France with a few other machines. It is a Dual Xeon
3.0GHz machine with 2048MB of RAM. If it has enough disk, it would be
perfect to put snapshots. If not, I think we could find a disk for that.

BTW I never proposed you, but if you want an account on io.debian.net,
just ask me. It is primarily dedicated to Debian Developers, but also to
everybody who help the GNU/kFreeBSD port.

Among the machines donated by Debian France, we also plan to use one of
them to host various services, including the wanna-build database for
kfreebsd-i386, kfreebsd-amd64, and hurd-i386, and possibly to hold the
build logs. I think it would be then possible to give you an access to
the wanna-build database, so that you can requeue and binNMU packages

The machines should arrive during February, so I hope they will be
online during March. I will give you more details as soon as I have some.


[1] you may have noticed this build daemon is currently down for an
unknown reason, that's why some packages have not been uploaded.
maxwell.aurel32.net is now rebuilding the lost packages, so they should
be uploaded by tomorrow. I will have more news about hagrid.debian.net
on monday.
