It seems after the death of GF/FF, ModDB made an arrangement for the domains from the former owner. There seems to be some interest in "helping them rebuild the archive", but I'm not quite sure what this means since there's no indication if this arrangement included the file repo or database. It's possible that it could just be a fresh start and dependent on users to add content. Even so, I don't see either making a 1:1 comeback with their directory style navigation as compared to ModDB, it was far less intuitive to use. The bigger possibly is that both will be completely new sites. That or serve strictly as mirrors for ModDB/IndieDB content.
