Probably the wrong mailinglist.
But portsnap is not updating since a few days while there are commits on  
the ports tree. [1]

After some searching I found I am not the only one. Apparently there is  
maintenance being done on the servers.

I read a lot of blogs/RSS/etc. Nowhere any signs of maintenance on the  
servers. What is wrong with announcing these things on for example  

NB: I know it is voluntary work, thanks for doing it.
