Unfortunately I can't host it anymore. I've put the site's code online (http://github.com/pdewacht/source.debian.net) in the hope that somebody else could, but it's not something you can put on a standard hosting account. The system requirements are about 200gb disk space and the more RAM the merrier. On my old server (I don't recall the exact specs but it was a fairly beefy system), re-indexing took about 6 hours for a typical update. During that time the server was pretty much unusable for anything else. I'm guessing that will be much better if you could put the indices on an SSD. The scripts actually don't do anything very complex, it's basically an opengrok config file and a script to maintain an uncompressed tree of the current Debian source. I didn't try to archive historic versions of packages, or do things like expanding tarballs in source package (I was hoping OpenGrok would learn how to search inside tarballs, but it still doesn't do that).
