This was not clear enough. With one week I meant, that it would need a
week to build the packages currently waiting if no new ones were added

Steve Langasek has been building packages manually that were only
waiting for the alpha build ever since the fast alpha buildd died. You
might consider contacting him or ask on debian-alpha for somebody else
to make porter upload.
