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

You are actually wrong there.

"Not being accepted" is *not* the same as "being refused".  If I had written 
"They are being refused", that would have indicated that a decision had been 
made.  Instead, I wrote "They aren't being accepted", which indicates simply 
that acceptance has not happened -- which could be due to a decision being 
made, but could also be due to absenteeism, lack of communication, failure to 
notice offers, or whatever.
