Arm, IA64 and sparc buildd admins don't have the email addresses set
on www.buildd.net.

Gerhard Tonn <gt@debian.org> is running the s390 buildd. If you ask
him or Bastian Banks (waldi on irc) nicely they can help you build for
s390. There is also a s390 emulator you can run on your pc. It might
not be the fastest but still faster than looking for someone to build
the package for every upload.
