Hi Ben,

I do not know, maybe the core of the problem is not whether the packages are
available, but who takes the responsability to make them available : I think I
remember that it was asked and refused that they can be downloaded from the
ftp-master server. If I get the green light, I can copy them on a machine of
mine and make them available by http.

In the meantime, since most of the packages exist in VCSes or on
mentors.debian.net, I think that there is possiblity to work around the
problem, although it is less conventient.

Have a nice day,
