I have seen several packages that were uploaded around a month ago that
haven't been built yet on various archs. libtheora on alpha, and jasper
on mipsel are two examples I know about. I finally had someone build
jasper on mipsel a couple days ago so that it wouldn't keep holding up
kdelibs. alpha isn't actually holding up libtheora because it has never
built on alpha before, but I wouldn't be surprised to see other packages
being held up for similar timespans. The overall installed stats on the
archs are still in a downward trend.


It's a shame one of the few ports that is doing a good job keeping up
isn't going to be released with Sarge.
