Note that I *have* offered to help out maintaining buildd hosts for
architectures currently maintained by other people who are also in other
roles in the project, and that this help was turned down; and given the
fact that I've maintained a varying number of buildd hosts (but at least
one) ever since july 2001, I would say that I'm more than qualified to
do this.

While I did (and still do) understand the reasons for not accepting that
help, it's not really fair now to suddenly say that the burden "isn't on
the porters today".
