The maintainers that wanted to help (Richard (?) and Guy) had and have
the same archive access as me.
And as far as I can remember -- the problem were in order of occurence:
- backlog in incoming (yes, was not solved for a long time)
- archive layout similar to the main archive (not yet solved -- some coordination needed)
- downtime (due to broken hardware - has been solved with a donated
harddisk (paid by me with donations from selling Debian CDs))
- archive access for archive maintainers (not solved for a long
time due to administrative restrictions -- would have been solved
