Goswin, the problem isn't that we can't accept donated cycles but that
we need packages that we can trust, which means built by a developer in

It's nothing personal. I don't know the reasons why you weren't accepted
as a DD and that's not really the issue at hand. But shutting down those
buildds was the right thing to do I think.
