Maybe you shouldn't automatically assume then that the other person
doesn't know what they are talking about?

Neither 1) nor 2) have happened, yet you decided to upload the
package to unstable. Did you check back with the rust maintainers?

rustc and cargo were already uploaded for mips64el and later removed
because of the LLVM bug which made the package FTBFS on the buildds.
I don't understand why you just went ahead and uploaded the package
without seemingly checking back with the Rust maintainers.

(Cross-)building and uploading rustc for a new architecture is not
hard. Making the native compuiler actually work properly, on the
other hand, is.
