packages.debian.org is hosed

Randolph and I were noticing that new packages are not shnowing up on
packages.debian.org anymore. For example, the archive has:

lftp ftp.debian.org:/debian/dists/unstable/main/binary-i386/editors> dir codecomma*
-rw-rw-r--   1 ftp      ftp        262000 Aug  5 18:52 codecommander_0.9.7-2.deb

But packages.debian.org is not aware of this package. 

Well I tracked this one down. 

getting Packages/Sources from unstable
/org/ftp.debian.org/ftp/dists/unstable/main/source/Sources.gz: No such
file or directory

joeyh@va:/org/www.debian.org/cron/daily_updates>ls -l /org/ftp.debian.org 
total 1
-rw-r--r--   1 root     root          596 Jan 19  2000 apache.conf
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root            4 Oct 27  1998 debian -> ftp/
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root           18 Feb 14  1999 ftp -> ../ftp.root/debian

Both of these links are broken.

What really confuses me is this in today's log:

run-parts: executing /org/www.debian.org/cron/daily_updates/2packages
getting Packages/Sources from unstable
updating Packages/unstable
getting Packages/Sources from frozen
updating Packages/frozen
getting Packages/Sources from stable
updating Packages/stable
Re-indexing files for web searches

So how on earth does it work with a broken symlink?
