Is there a possibility of finding a machine to take over as ``ftp.debian.org''
while the upgrade happens? Too often it seems that a minor fix snowballs into
a major problem. If we can set up such a replacement system, even temporarily,
it would allow the upgrade to be installed and tested in less of a rush and
any problems would be invisible to the external users. (Obviously, it would
be ideal if we could keep the secondary system as a "hot backup"... but
here I'm dreaming.)
