That's not how I was reading that list.

If no more working hardware is available sometime in the future, drop the
arch *then*.

If there is no buildd [admin] time available, *add more buildds*
[buildd admins].

There's a difference between being illiterate and missing something.
Please don't assume that I insinuate the former; AFAIK I didn't.
Please also don't assume that I *have* a pet arch.

My recollection is somewhat different, in that in Debian, people seem to
be perfectly within their rights to say "this is my corner of the project,
and the fact that I'm not doing anything about $corner at the moment is
not a problem -- it's still mine, and therefore your offer to help with
$corner is declined".

That problem will not go away by dropping $ARCH.
