My personal opinion:

It's the job of the debian maintainer and if he wants to put the debian
packages on another machines online, he should ask somebody here to help
with webspace. 

But we/Oliver cannot wait with releases just because Debian server are
offline. Debian people don't wait with their releases until XFce4 is
stable, too. If you always wait until something is done, you never can
make releases.
