And if they dont, I have hartly sympathy. The news was on d-d-a. You cannot distribute developer related information, which "ftp-master is down" is, further within debian's current news systems. That the debian webpage can be made better is a completly different topic. And a news frame with content from d-d-a _might_ be a nice idea. regards, Holger P.S./BTW: the host was down, not compromised.
