I think from a technical point every buildd admin has access to
wanna-build for all architectures. It is just policy not to mess
around in someone elses backyard.
Maybe the email@example.com mails could be CCed to a group of existing
buildd admins to take care of general problems while specific problems
(like a broken chroot) are left to the specific admins.
Prospective buildd admins could then also start of by joining that
group and getting an education there before being thrown into the deep
end of maintaining a full buildd.
