Re: Debian needs more buildds. It has offers. They aren't being accepted.

Not really willing to jump in on this discussion, but...

That's not fully accurate. It did indeed take two weeks, but James
mailed me a few days ago that I had encrypted the SSH RSA key using a
GPG key of which he didn't have the private key anymore. He's mailed me
this probably at the same time he's added akire's key to the right file;
I suspect this'll be added when that mail gets on top of his TODO list

This, I think, is also not accurate. I don't buy it if people say that
James didn't add this key because he didn't "like" Goswin or anyone

(Most of) the rest of your mail, I do agree with; it appears that James
and Ryan are overloaded with work, and that they could use some help.
