Because the buildds are currently doing other stuff?

Google for "buildd"?
There are numerous threads in the past about how and where to obtain
information about buildds.

See why the current buildd system is obsolete?
When multibuild would have been finished, you would have this kind of info
at hand. Sadly, multibuild got stuck and I consider it now dead. Maybe
someone else want to pick it up and continue it?
(Yes, I'm somewhat pissed off myself because multibuild got stuck... I would
really liked to see it succeed, but sometimes something is out of your
control and you have to live with that....)
