I had same problem some days ago with camstream.
I sent a lot of emails, but I got very few constructive responses:
- I know it's not well documented, but it's the false address.
- The build daemon will built it automagically.
When I saw the last response, I waited a while (3 weeks), but the build
daemons haven't tried to build the package.
Then, I contacted the person who filled the bug telling that camstream
is i386 only, who tell me that camstream was listed in the
Package-arch-specific file . He removed it from this file (Thanks
As you package is listed in this file, you have to find somebody to
remove it. Hint: this file is updated from CVS  every night, you
could look at the commits to find somebody to do that.
The last problem I have, is that actually the file which is updated
is not directly Package-arch-specific, but tmp/Package-arch-specific (
have a look on auric on ). But I hope somebody will copy it soon...
