He is using testing. We never made any commitment wrt availability in
testing. Testing is a *tool* for us, unfortunately too many testing
users can't understand this.

No choice has been made. I don't know what you're on, but you'd better
put it off.

The buildd queues aren't FIFO, this has been explained already a dozen
times if not more.

buildd problems do happen, have happened in the past and will continue
to happen. In the MIPS case, the buildds are impacted by real
technical problems that take time and effort to get fixed. It's not
like it's a manpower problem in replacing a broken disk or something
