It did cause some problems, but I have fixed most of them.

The update scripts grab the latest Packages/Source files from ftp.debian.org
Hopefully there will be an ldap database someday which can be used to
generate the info dynamically.

As Culus mentioned, links should be to ftp.debian.org (ftp.us.debian.org?).
There are a few broken links in the release pages (pages not handled by wml)
and I'm not sure how to get them fixed.

The lintian pages are almost certainly not being updated, but I haven't
checked. If so, scp could be used to update them.

BTW culus, I've been meaning to as what you think of having a new account
set up, say debwww since the group already exists, which would own all
the web files and would run the daily cron job?
