I never meant anything but a polite question since the package has been
stuck on mips for a long time (previous uploads as well).

I am probably one of the very few DDs not fully aware of that, but is there
a single page which links to all the developer's resources of the buildd.net
kind? I searched debian.org and it doesn't seem to mention buildd.net
anywhere. By far, the best starting point for all the package status,
explanations etc. locations is the Q&A's developer.php output, but wouldn't
it be nice if we had all the links collected anywhere on debian.org? Again,
I might have missed existence of such page :)

I'm happy to, I just hope it won't mean this version of pike7.2 doesn't make 
it into Sarge :)
