The subject and initial mail is not about sbuild being secret but
about the overall change for Debian. I think that one is
justified. Nothing to do with this subthread.

As for http://www.debian.org/devel/buildd:

$ grep sbuild http://www.debian.org/devel/buildd
<em>wanna-build</em> and calls <em>sbuild</em> to build the packages.
<dt><a href="http://packages.debian.org/sbuild";>sbuild</a></dt>

This nice public page only points to the nice public sbuild debian
package. There is no link to the actual sbuild used on buildds.

Further the links for wanna-build and buildd (which probably
indirectly included sbuild) are broken: 

http://m68k.debian.org/buildd/getting.html --> connection refused

Did you by chance mean the wanna-build svn link on
