We haven't restarted it, somewhat deliberately: these days the imports
are in such a terrible state that it's more misleading to have them than
not, and certainly nobody was working on fixing the problems with it.
Our to-do list for dgit support is currently as follows:

* Secure interface to get a single .dsc with checksums
(https://code.launchpad.net/~cjwatson/launchpad/sourcefileurls-include-meta/+merge/276928)
* Basic Launchpad API support in dgit (I have a branch for this in
progress, which I'll test once I have the API addition above in
place)
* Equivalent push policy to dgit-repos-server in turnip (somehow; what
do we do about all the taint handling?)
* Archive-permission-based ACLs for target-default package repositories
* Allow appropriate celebrity to create target-default package
repositories
* Mass importer from publishing history (a bit like udd mass_import.py)
* Charm for importer
* Mojo spec for importer
* Deploy importer to staging/production

I think this is reasonably tractable.
