debian-ports archive moved

Dear all,

During Debian SunCamp [1] we have moved the debian-ports archive from 
the old leda.debian.net machine to a DSA administrated machine called
porta.debian.org. The software managing the archive, mini-dak, is still
the same, however the whole is now better integrated in the debian.org
namespace and with the mirror system.

You will find the users visible changes below.

APT archive
The APT archive is now accessible on ftp.ports.debian.org [2], which
maps to 2 machines, one in The Netherlands and one in the USA. Here
are the corresponding sources.list line:

  deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian unstable main
  deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian unreleased main

and possibly:

  deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian experimental main

Redirections have been setup so that the old URLs still work, but they
will not be kept permanently.

In addition, given that the number of debian-ports users is relatively
small, the mirror network has been dropped in favor of a CDN. It is not
yet available, but it should be the case in the next hours or days.
Please see the corresponding page for the details [3].

Uploading packages
People having upload rights should now upload packages to the
ports-master.debian.org FTP server in the /incoming directory.

CD images
CD images are now available on [4]. Again redirections have been setup.

Web site
The debian-ports website is now available on [5] using HTTPS, and
redirection from the various previous URL have been set up. The links
and instructions on the web site have also been update, don't hesitate
to report any broken link.

We would like to thank to the DSA team and the SunCamp organizers for
making that possible.

Aurelien on behalf of the debian-ports team
