As Bastian Blank said yesterday on IRC, w-b admins are idly refusing to add
a new buildd for s390 to the ACLs. So, blame neuro and/or elmo, not s390...

How about a new w-b admin team and a set of several buildds *and* several
buildd admins for each arch?
I would consider a *minimum* of 6 buildds and at least 3-4 buildd admins per
arch a good starting point.
