First all, DSA will not point a debian.org entry to a machine that is not
maintained by DSA (only exception here for historical reasons is alioth).

Second concern i have here is that (AFAIK) everyone can upload
everything to mentors.debian.net. Which would mean we then would/could
distribute non-distribiteable material under the debian.org domain. How
can this issue be resolved? The webpage only very vague says:
"You can upload your package to this server (through special tools like
'dupload' or 'dput') and after a few checks it will be stored in our
repository." What are these few checks?!
