  I feel it's deeper than that:

  now that aurélien completely stopped to upload non built packages at
all (a thing he did on a regular basis before, and just automated with
his "rogue" autobuilder) just look at [1], whereas every single arch is
keeping up quietly, arm and sparc seem to go to the deepness of hell. I
don't know who are the sparc buildd admins, but for sure, the arm port
do not seem to be that well.
