Your best bet is to contact debian-www, as MJR said. I've CCed them.
I do not believe the query on your URL should upset the process; are you
sure you didn't accidentally put a space in the URL, or something like
that? The automated process checks that your page is sane (has the word
Debian on it etc.), so the d-www people should be able to find the
problem for you.
