Problem with web site


a couple of weeks ago I reported a problem with the web site:

>I have a problem with the Debian web site: http://www.debian.org/
>The "Name", "Description", and "Maintainer" fields of some of the packages are
>empty, trying to download such a package results in an "Unknown URL" error.

Ray responded with:

>There was a name translation bug in the FTP-interface, which has been
>fixed now. Please notice that the URLs produced are FTP-URLs; the FTP site
>is overflowed with requests, so please download from a mirror
>(see http://www.debian.org/ftp-list.html).
>The missing information for various entries occurs when the script that

Realy, the problem disappeared for while. Unfortunately, I now have
exactly the same problem again.
