Yes. So I haven't uploaded any of those lately. I have one ready but
don't want to confuse the issue for sarge.

How about geda-gschem? Waiting on arm for a couple of weeks now.
Holding up migration of all of geda* on all architectures.

I couldn't work out where wanna-build CVS is hosted so I couldn't
actually check the order to see where electronics fits in.

But right now, arm (for example) just cannot build all the packages that
need building. Changing the order won't help. Only adding machines or
removing packages will help.
