My understanding is times.d.n is not coming back.
About merging times.d.n with news.d.n, at some moment I looked at it,
and there was not too much to merge, 90% of the stuff in times.d.n was
aggregated news item from others sources and in news.d.n I do not
aggregate stuff automatically, I link stuff manually.
>From the top of my head times.d.n was aggregating:
- debconf team blog (not used very often lately).
- debian project news issues
- debian Package of the day (debaday.d.n, also dead now) 
- debian interviews, the only original content there. I offered
the interviewed to continue publishing the interviews in news.d.n
without answer 
 I offered Martin Ferrari who was the final coordinator of
debaday.d.n to host it together with news.d.o or to put a static
copy of it in the web to not lose the information. But Martin
was swamped by $REAL_LIFE and we never got to look at it.
