I think that setting an alternate website because you did not receive
any answer is definitely a problem, and you should send a mail
directly to RMS, as he will know who to contact to get the information
you need. 
On one hand, it's probably way more secure to have ftp.gnu.org not
accessible via a shell for non-admins ; on the other hand a more
secured system should not make everything going slowly.

Apparently people installing the system have trouble with the new
hardware, so I still did not had a chance to connect on it, to
reinstall Savannah and to check the whole server. 

However, it is surely better to have a perfectly clean system before
it's plugged on the network. So even if the downtime is really to be
very annoying, it is probably for the best.
