Sorry for the delay... :-(

The cron job that builds the weekly images normally goes in the order:

i386 source amd64 multi powerpc alpha armel hppa ia64 mips mipsel s390 sparc

for reference. What happened here (and has happened a couple of times
in the past) is that a source package moved from one part of the
archive to another (in this case the weirdx package went from contrib
to main) and dak doesn't/didn't handle this case very well. The
debian-cd scripts found that the weirdx .orig.tar.gz file was missing
and bailed out.

I don't always have the time to check up on the build failures, which
is why this happened for 3 weeks running. Once you pointed it out
(thanks!), I spoke to the ftpteam and got them to fix the archive. All
should be fine now AFAICS.
