Your (Hans's) mail seems to have the assumption that such news isn't put
on the home page, while in fact it is. See for example this overview of
older news items where you can see that a compromise is announced:
I'm not sure what you mean with "the main server is down", but as far as
I'm aware there's nothing down that's relevant to end-users - only
developers. The mirror network seems to function just fine.

News targeted purely at developers, e.g. d-d-a and d-i-a could maybe be
listed on www.debian.org/devel, but I see no added value of listing it on
the home page.
