Re: package update lag on powerpc

I feel like I've answered this question a thousand times....

There is a build daemon now, but only for potato, and I do not have
time to fix all of its failures by hand.  There are also packages which
build but present warnings which indicate serious problems, and I mark
to look at later.  I've posted the list a few times.  No one else seems
quite inspired enough to look at them, either.

Non-us is a whole other problem - I have not yet established if I can
legally upload to non-us under the crypto regs, and Hartmut has not had
time for his buildd lately.
