Put it in the wiki along with everyone else where it's obvious.

That's fine, but it's irrelevant -- you need to be able to demonstrate
you can keep up consistently for at least a three month period; at the
moment you seem to be at least four months away from that, given how long
it seems to take m68k to catch back up. That's fine, and there's no reason
why m68k can't demonstrate that Debian can effectively maintain a "toy"
or "embedded" or whathaveyou port that's *not* intended to release.
But it does mean you've got no chance of a release requalification
anytime soon, which means you need to be proactive about getting an
archive qualification done.
