"has not reponded" is a very vague description. Can you give a better
one please?

The problem is that www.debian.org (== ftp.debian.org) is on a separate system 
from master.debian.org, the developers machine. www.debian.org is hosted at
Central Michigan University, on a machine that - due to lack of drivers 
for Linux or *BSD - runs Solaris. It is maintained remotely across the
atlanic by yours truely. The connection is sometimes painfully slow,
and I also also have an MSc thesis to produce.

In case of problems with the WWW server, I appreciate it if they are 
reported to me directly.
