There are rumours that the noticeable multi-week gap last fall when no
DSAs were released at all were caused by some buildd failure on one of
the lesser-userd arches and the security team decided to defer
advisories until security builds could be released for all arches.

I have a dedicated opinion about this time of service the major arches
received during this time, but I do not want to voice it here as I am
only talking about a rumour and I do not want to start yet another
flame war.
