I'm not complaining about the slow archs, and the m68k buildd failure
will surely be noticed. It has not, however, been retried. Why?
I'm asking for *information*. How do I find out what the plans are?
What about the mips and sparc failures? The buildd logs look like
FTBFS, even though that's not right; do they read this list? How does
one find out? How does one say: "this is blocking my package, can you
give me an estimate on how long it will take?"
I'm not trying to grind an axe or complain, I'm seeking information
and to move the process along expeditiously because it's blocking a
lot more than just an xfree86 upgrade.
