zumbi was working on moving debian-ports to debian.org infrastructure
and got some of it done (the website for instance). I asked him about
it on IRC and got this response:
<pabs> zumbi: this mail looks like it needs a status update re
ports.d.o [🔎] 20150504062822.GA24735@xanadu.blop.info">https://lists.debian.org/[🔎] 20150504062822.GA24735@xanadu.blop.info
<zumbi> pabs: we had this: https://titanpad.com/debian-ports
<zumbi> pabs: I was hoping for debcamp/debconf to be able to finish it up
<zumbi> (however I am still unsure about if I'll be able to attend event)
<pabs> zumbi: may I copy that into email or can you?
<zumbi> pabs: feel free to copy it
<zumbi> pabs: it needs someone with wanna-build database experience,
some dsa, aurel32 (and maybe some ftp-master) to complete the work
