Don't know, but that would a good idea as it was also expressed by another
buildd admin to have dedicated ML where such announcements like the move of
w-b to another machine would be announced in advance.

That's why I try to collect the buildd admins email addresses on buildd.net.
But I can only put on there, what I know and what other people tell me to
publish there.
When a buildd admin don't want to cooperate to make the service of buildds
more usuable to the users and maintainers, there's nothing I can do about it.

There are other archs that are frequently been asked to rebuilt this and that
and where there is no response as well. I'm glad to say, that our "beloved
doorstopper" arch m68k is not one of them, but indeed I've heard from several
DDs that m68k is one of the most responsive and helpful archs.
Maybe the other archs should use m68k as an example for cooperation and workflow?
