mail, but the status page is updated only very seldom). hppa waits on
DSA right now. powerpc sometimes this week. (I sent the mail after I
reached a state where I thought "now this really works, and just needs
to be rolled out to the buildds" - what stays open is just going
through the list of arches not building now, and adding them if

the preconditions are in place. And it's just "yet another thing
