So why does Ryan have the authority to reject more buildd's when he
obviously is overburdened to the point he doesn't respond to emails
(see Branden Robinson's post as an example). From an untrained eye the
mips buildd's seem to be building packages more or less fine just that
they were lagged by the human behind them. One example is kdelibs which
wasn't built for nearly a month due to what should have been a Dep-Wait
on a fixed libXrender, which was uploaded the same day mips attempted to
build kdelibs.
