This is completely beside the point. Nathanel was not claiming that
James and Ryan don't have enough work, but that they do have more work
than they can handle and should outsorce some of it by e.g. allowing
the installation of a second mipsel buildd.
I am not at the top of things but the most prominent example in the
last I can think of is qt. It was on top of the mipsel build queue for
a long time and blocked KDE. Nothing happened. (iirc) mrvn built it
