Yes, the main problem with buildd's and DSA's is that the first 90%
arrives the same day, but the others either arrive some days later or
never, and there's no clear view on which one is going to happen.
I agree with both of the following proposals:
* There's a defined set of archs that we will not delay DSA's for, and them
becoming available later will lead to them being installed into the
archive without a -2 followup mail issued.
* There should be more insight into the queues and functioning of the
buildd's by the security team, similar to that available for the regular
That would resolve the most imporant problems and therefore make it much
easier to decide to include a new slower architecture.
