Hmm. In testing and unstable without arm support. How does this
happen? The debian/control says Architecture: all for relevant
packages. I don't see any mention of xerces or icu in

There's a lot of information hidden beneath the surface, it seems. Is
there a place through which I could have discovered this, other than
asking on debian-mentors? :-)

I'm not seeing xerces or icu packages in these lists. Am I missing

And how would I go about asking the buildd admins? Is there a list
for this? Are there specific people whose email addresses I should
use? Sorry if I'm being thick-headed about this, but this seems to be
one area where documentation is (uncharacteristically) sparse.
