Any ideas why the alpha buildd still shows "needs build" for hypre
there's still a big backlog as the alpha buildd was more or less down
for 2 weeks recently. Things don't seem to be getting better very
unfortunately (still more than 300 packages in Needs-Build).
I'm really sorry about that. We had a lot of crashes related to one
of the disk drives in goetz.d.o. That disk has now been replaced, and
things have got better, although the machine has crashed once since.
If that happens again, I will have to do some more diagnostics on it.
It would be useful if the machine could run multiple buildd's in
parallel; it is, after all, a 4 CPU machine, and currently only runs
one build at a time, which seems to be a waste. I will raise this
with the DSA team, and see if things can be changed to help work
through the backlog
