I built it in a clean chroot using cowbuilder (there is also sbuild,
pdbuilder, lvmbuilder, qemubuilder).

Thats only because I built and uploaded it on an amd64 machine. The
i386 one will show up after the package is accepted into Debian by the
ftpmasters, the i386 buildd (autobuilder daemon) builds it and the
buildd maintainer uploads it.

Try reading the developers-reference too:

That shouldn't be needed, mentors will detect when the package has
been accepted and remove it. I guess the next version of the site code
(debexpo) should also look at the NEW queue and do the right thing.

I don't think sponsors.debian.net get used much these days. I
certainly haven't looked at it in years. My advice would be to ignore
