1) what's the cost of letting the unstable buildds run on a "don't

2) what's up with the FTPmasters' minutes which stated the hppa

3) shouldn't such a decision (the removal of an arch from the archive)
be voted on, instead of being the arbitrary ruling of a couple of DDs?
Or did I miss the bit that said "not releasing in time equals archive
