The build appears to have worked, FWIW. I've checked that the jigdo
files are valid by rebuilding images from them, and I'm uploading the
jigdo bits (slowly) now to cdimage.

I wasn't especially expecting an immediate response last night, but it
does get really annoying when there are multiple mails every day now,
pestering for the new r2 images, and the toolchain needed to build
them has just been allowed to rot by the architecture maintainers.

Apologies for the tantrum, but _please_ can we get architecture folks
to put some effort into the CD creation process...?
