Hmm, I'm a bit uncertain about the copyright of the webpages:
 From the footer of the webpages I would conclude that SPI holds the
 copyright on all content of the Debian webpages, is this right?
 Is this legally safe without explicit statements from the authors of
 that content?

 The scripts that generate the webpages have different copyrights
 and licences but I think this is ok, isn't it? (The ones that carry
 copyright notices with them seem to be GPL licenced, so they aren't
 affected by this bug.

If my conclusion above are right, I think the SPI board has to handle that
