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

I have seen no demand here.  I have seen a case made for a problem, and
offers from people to fix it, and two people in Debian have apparently
not even acknowledged those offers.  That is, the offers have been
ignored rather than refused or accepted.

I don't think that James or Ryan have any greater monopoly on what's
right than any of the rest of us hundreds of developers, or the rest of
the thousands or Debian users.

I haven't seen any demands, nor have I seen any evidence that the people
making "decisions" on the matter actually have.
