I just looked it up today.  I like the concept a lot.

2.) Do you think this services should be made an official service of
the debian project? Please give a reason for your answer.

Having up-to-date spam filters and virus scanners in the stable
distribution is a really useful thing.  For that reason, I would like it
to be made an official part of Debian.  However, it must not be done in
a way that burdens the current ftp-team.

3.) What do you think about including a volatile section into the main

Who is on the current volatile team?  They will definitely need to be
Debian Developers.  I am not sure what criteria is used when deciding
that even a DD is "trustworthy" enough to become an ftp-master, so I
suspect there may be some problems there.  The ftp team is fairly hidden
from the project at large; the only way volatile can go in is by talking
to them and figuring out how to make it happen without creating any
security issues.

As DPL, I would like to set up a meeting between the ftp team and the
volatile team to see what it would take.
