There has also been discussion about setting up a separate entity
with separate servers - nonfree.org - which may or may not go ahead now.
This is undecided right now - the person who agreed to host the box and was having a good deal of the Debian archive infrastructure installed already was not amenable to keep on with the non-free.org effort should the resolution fail.
A probable outcome would be to not clone the current non-free part of Debian somewhere else but rather start a new service where current and future maintainers of non-free software could migrate/host their packages. If this proves successful, it could lead to the obsolence of non-free on debian.org in a couple of years, who knows?
I would have to check back with the people supporting non-free.org and also a new box and hosting would be needed most probably.
