These groups don't have any real-life relevance anymore, AFAIK. They
were important back when ftp-master.d.o was still accessible to any DD;
but when ftp-master became a restricted host, they stopped getting
updated. E.g., firstname.lastname@example.org also has access to the m68k wanna-build db, but
is not in the right group.
Currently, personally I don't even have a username on ftp-master.d.o (as
is the case for none of the m68k buildd admins); all my wanna-build
access goes through one of my buildd hosts.
Most other stuff in your summary seems correct from my POV.

Glad to be of help :)
