The ports list is actually not the right contact address, as buildd
admins don't necessarily subscribe to those lists.  The correct contact
address is <arch>@buildd.debian.org.

There is no canonical shortcut for this; if the package really needs to
be rebuilt on all architectures, you need to contact the buildd admins
for each architecture.  Unofficially, if you contact Ryan, James,
LaMont, Gerhard (Tonn, gt@d.o) and m68k@buildd.debian.org, you will have
contacted the official contacts for all of the buildds. ;)

Nevertheless, this would certainly be the fastest and most efficient way
to get the package requeued on all architectures.  Well, you could set a
build-conflicts: with the buggy version of package A, I suppose, so the
upload has *some* changes in it... ;)
