Thanks for the terminological clarification.
I was speaking specifically of porter uploads; my discussion is about
the specific case of s390 complaining that they can't do their porting
work (which includes simply compiling packages) because the w-b admins
won't add whatever buildd. My point is that porters already have all
the authority they need to build and upload packages.
