archive.debian.org is back
archive.debian.org is the primary server that holds old Debian releases.
Check http://www.debian.org/distrib/archive for more information.
The server, saens.debian.org as we usually call it, was down because of
a hardware problem (dead hard disks) and a location problem (not too
accessible bandwidth donor). It has now been revived with new hard disks
(a nice new 144 GB RAID in fact :) and a new host, the Computer Science
Department at the University of Minnesota (http://www.cs.umn.edu/).
Special thanks go to Scott Dier.
Notice also that the same server is a push-primary mirror for the regular
Debian archive. It's been included in the http.us.debian.org rotation, and
may become ftp.debian.org (again).
