What is required is a
(or whatever you called the alias for wanna-build --give-back).
The buildd admin won't look at a webpage listing packages that need to
be handled any more than he is looking at the list of packages
left dangling without action.
There is a big difference between packages that fail with some error
and packages that fail with missing depends. I realy don't think users
can do anything productive for the later unlike the real FTBFS errors
where one can debug the problem, write a patch, submitt a bugreport
and so on.
