Maybe it's not entirely impossible that the other subthread starting at

and containing a few reports similar to Thiemo's

could have contributed to the "buildd administration" complaints?

The reaction to my (admittedly less than optimal) attempt at an analysis
that followed was not "oh, do check these with porters and maintainers
and then get back to me" from someone who could then change the file,
but half dozen people saying something to the effect "I'm a
porter/maintainer and were utterly unsucessful at my attempts to get
anything done".
I do appreciate your comments of proposed P-a-s additions that you think
problematic but the rest of the thread rather spells "don't bother".

Kind regards
