Don't understand what you're trying to say here. My point is that apparently 
we _had_ buildd redundancy at some point, but have lost it for some reason.
To me that indicates a problem for the project, especially when it turns out 
that the remaining buildds are incapable of keeping up by themselves.

I can see the current status fine on jvw's buildd pages: those three arches 
only have a single active buildd listed when they're supposed to have two.
Also, "restricted" does not really tell me what the exact purpose of a 
machine is.
