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

I'm going to pick this apart line by line.

I would.  Specifically, replacement in at least some of the specific jobs 
which act as a bottleneck for adding buildds.  Certainly not in *all* their 
many, many jobs.

Not really an issue.  Different people can do different jobs.  Even security 
can be distributed.

Which apparently they don't.

>(currently, so consider that their time constraints may change),
And if their time constraints change, then they can offer to take those jobs 
back.  We have to deal with reality now, not some hypothetical future reality 
which may or may not happen.

They don't need to. Apparently the volunteers know what they're doing already, 
but have been rejected or ignored.  Check with Ingo Juergensmann or Goswin 
von Brederlow, or any number of other people who've been "on the ground" on 
this issue.
