Both kdepim and kde-baseapps build-depend on unbuilt baloo which
build-depends on unbuilt kfilemetadata which is currently in
needs-build. It may be a few days before we get through all that.
There are over 230 packages in needs-build when I write this.
(If you would prefer I could prioritise kfilemetadata to be built as
soon as possible to speed up the rebuilding of the kde stack.)

glib2.0 FTBFS (test-suite failures) and is holding up Gnome. If you
could work your magic on that one too I would be mightily pleased!
(I think one or two of the test suite failures seen on the build
daemons only appear when running an SMP kernel; I really should take
a look at those.)
I think there is also a dependency loop involving opencv which is
blocking some other important packages from being built. Once the
build daemons get through a substantial part of the backlog I'll
tackle that one, as it will need a manual build and upload.
