I originally moved it to people.debian.org on a very temporary basis,
and asked the Ubuntu sysadmins if it was possible to host it on an
"official" ubuntu machine (that was around end of August). I never got
an answer, and didn't want to continue to run it on Debian resources, so
I disabled it.

Cool! Tell me if you need help with some changes to the code. I'm not
actively maintaining it (the core functionality will be available in
chdist (devscripts package) soon), but I can help with some fixes.

I'm still a bit annoyed by the fact that there's no official development
machine for non-Canonical Ubuntu developers. Having all those scripts
run on various hosts over the internet is clearly not optimal...
