This is news to me.

It means that when one is told "just wait, your package will get
rebuilt"; it is not necessarily true at all.  There is no upper bound
at all on time to wait for building, and that's a disaster.  People
should stop repeating the fiction then that "just wait" means "your
package will eventually get built".
