The new web server, klecker.debian.org, is online! I've coordinated the move to it (Jay is still somewhere travelling :), thanks to the admins (all of them helped in one way or another) it's all fine now. We have also moved the Packages/ part of the web pages to packages.debian.org, and lintian/ part to lintian.debian.org, and are pondering about rebuilding+mirroring the site every four hours (now it's done every eight).

The doc/bug-* docs on the FTP site should be regenerating regularly from now on, along with README.mirrors.* files, thanks to some cooperation from Omnic. Now we only need to work out the situation with lists.cfg file, so that mailing-lists.txt and {,un}subscribe.wml can be regenerated easily.

I've been fixing the main mirrors list, too, since lots of cruft had accumulated in there. The cleaning is far from over, unfortunately, because we have a whole shitload of mirrors all over the world. :) I wish I could say that for my country -- there's only one Debian mirror here :/

The larger BTS problems were fixed by removing some gecko's hacks. He might be back in action soon, so a new debbugs package might see the day soon.

The lully situation still isn't fixed. :/ TLS people, if you're reading, please take care of it ASAP.
