I don't think you understand.  There was not a peep on the list about
anything being up with the daily image until Sven explicitely stated it.
I would have expected the maintainer or others privy to the situation
to have said something earlier, along the lines of:

  "Hey folks, we know the daily image is busted and we are
   working on it.  We'll let you know when it's fixed so
   don't bug us".

That nothing was said concerns me, because it implies that either
no one else noticed or no one thought anyone on the list cared, which
is bad in either case.

I don't mean to belabor the point, I just want to have some idea what
is going on from the ppc perspective, since sometimes it is difficult
to glean the basic status from the developer list or the other lists.

Thanks again,
