I've spoken with Michael Hirmke 1 hour ago and after a short
discussion about this I would like to ask:

Is it needful to create another server with ported software?
The ftp.franken.de server already contains _many_ packages and
will contain them in future, too. This includes parts of the
base distribution as well eg. the newest version of less.

I'm already maintaining foreign packages (bc, cpio, ed, file,
tcsh...) and own packages (cron, df, eject, fortune, mt...) but
I'm using the franken server, of course.

Additionally I would perhaps maintain sed and tar.
