You can mail the autobuilder maintainers for an architecture, or you can
email the release team; there are no plans to give maintainers direct access
to the button AFAIK.  Someone should be involved in the decision who knows
the status of the port at the time, so that binNMUs aren't queued for
packages under circumstances when we *know* the build will just have to be
done over.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
