My idea is to have a web page with current "problems". A problem could be
a package not building, an uninstallable package, etc. The layout will be
much like the BTS, just that the only method to get rid of a "problem" is
to solve it (i.e. there is no "close" command"). Porters can then go
through the list of problems for their arches, write bug reports etc. The
buildds can also try to address problems in their idle time (for example,
ignore the build dependencies and build in an auto-apt environment, or do
an arch-specific rebuild).
