These mean that there are no binary packages for the current version of the
source package on those architectures. This usually means that there was a
failure when they tried to build your package (check buildd.debian.org if

Yes. Note that the "days old" count will start over. If 2.0-2 fixes
#128484, AND no other bugs are reported for 10 days, AND the package is
