The waiting period there was for when a package is marked building
without a trace of its outcome.

I think the waiting period is way to high when the package has
finished building (buildd.d.o has the log) and the buildd admin is not
doing his job of processing it. That should not be something that
takes a week on average but should be a day or below.

Given only one buildd admin caring for multiple archs and having a ton
of other work that is more important it certainly comes as no surprice
the buildd work doesn't get done.

I encourage everyone to volunteer to become a buildd admin,
esspecially for those archs with high delays (which are Jameses and
Ryans archs and s390).

The information is on buildd.d.o: http://buildd.debian.org/stats/
You have to download the arch-all.txt files fr each arch and grep

But someone has posted an url to a buildd.net alternative specialised
at just showing package(s) status. Grep in the flame war for it.
