Which list are you refering to here: debian-m68k or m68k-build(one I had
never heard about) or another one? I'm confused, probably because I
don't know all the aspects of being a developer.

I also went to the m68k.debian.org site that Ingo mentioned, where I
read about the buildd system; very interesting. I don't know if I want
to do it, but is there somewhere that describes the detailed
requirements for putting a machine on the buildd system? I have an
A3000/25 (may be too slow for this usage) that has set around idle most
of the time, though I'm trying to get back into doing some developement.
Does a buildd machine have to be dedicated to that purpose?
