That would be great.

Besides this sole problem, there are also many important (and one RC-level) 
bugs for packages.debian.org. I'm wondering if you could take a look at the 
running status of the website and investigate into them later.

The patch tracker, as part of sources.debian.org (not sources.debian.net), is 
not handled by debian-www team. It is under QA Team so I'm CC-ing this mail to
