If just had enough room. There are already too many Amigas taking
up my space :). Still, I like to support the port as much as I

Ok, good to know.

Will do! I'll answer your separate mail later!

Thanks, got them. Will change the password and install my SSH key ASAP.

Ah, glad to hear it has been fixed. Then there's nothing I am worrying
about. Are you working together with Ingo Juergensmann to update the
buildd status information on buildd.net?

Don't worry about radeontop. I just picked that package as an example to
check whether the build logs are still missing or not. This is one of
my own packages and the last upload was just done a few weeks ago, so
I thought I might check this one to see whether the problem has already
been addressed.

But when you say the logs are properly uploaded now, I'm happy. So,
please don't reschedule the package, it will updated in the very
near future anyway.
