Okay, let's try again:

 o There is an i386 buildd.
 o It runs on gluck, a machine based in the US.
 o It does not and will not in the foreseeable future build non-US packages.
 o I do not personally intend to do anything about this; anyone else
   is welcome to[1].
 o It _does_ however build main and contrib for both stable and
   unstable.  [but see below]

The i386 buildd gets stuck every day or so due to ssh sucking and lack
of time on my part to set things up to auto-unstuck itself and other
minor details like that.  It will build your packages, just perhaps
not as fast as one would like (i.e. days, rather than the same day).


[1] But then, who am I kidding?  This is Debian, where talk is all and
    actually doing things is a mortal sin. *sigh*
