Is all this awaiting our shift of abott? Or is it orthogonal? Do we need help from others? If so who?

For what it is worth, I took the liberty to set up an older version
(protocol 0.2) of the builder server for my own clients  in the
meantime, so now I am able to continue producing builds for FreeBSD,
but this should be also accessible from outside if some backup support
is needed until the official ones are back.

Yes, nightly builders and snapshots are waiting on the abbot replacement
at the moment. I've just sent a mail to try to find out what the status
of that is.
