Given that anyone with wanna-build access for an arch can fire off a binNMU,
I don't know if it's feasible to provide a comprehensive list; but I've
already been asked about keeping the amd64 maintainers in the loop, so I can
commit to putting the information I have somewhere public.  Let's make it
<http://ftp-master.debian.org/~vorlon/transition-binnmus.txt> rather than
the wiki, a wiki would be overkill.

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