There was minimal time between the announcement DSA got and the
shutdown. I added "scheduled" to the topic of #debian-devel to indicated
it didn't broke randomly but was cleanly shut down by DSA. My fault for
not sending a mail to d-i-a, sorry for that.
If we would had got a more timely announcement from the hoster, i would
had surely send a mail to d-i-a.
If you think we (DSA) are doing a bad job, please feel free to attand
DSA BoF on DC9 and lets talk about it there.
