Two RMs and later some DDs expressed their wish that uploading of
packages not build under the DDs direct control should cease imediatly
so I shutdown the wanna-build and thereby all connected buildds.
What bugs me is that last time when we complained that James does not
react to buildd applications we were told to work without him since he
is not neccessary to work a buildd and now some of the same people say
we shouldn't have.
One just can't win.
