Getting debian-installer working across all architectures was certainly
an issue at one time, though that time passed a few months ago.
Also, really huge stuff, like KDE, cannot be uploaded as frequently as
perhaps the maintainers would like because it kills the slower buildd's
for a few days.
Society is never going to make any progress until we all learn to
pretend to like each other.
