There are several reasons why this problem is blocking.

One reason is that, as I explained in another post, I need to check
the build logs on all architectures before I'm satisfied with my

Another is that many packages build-depend on each other, leading to a
potential mess of build failures if a required package is missing when
I try to build the next.

A third reason is that the lack of builds on all archs will probably
prevent the packages from migrating to testing.  I really want all my
packages to migrate to testing, so I am sure they will be in etch,
before I consider re-uploading to fix minor problems or improve the

But it's not you I need to convince, it is Ryan or whoever admins the
