Thanks! That's useful. Are these logs posted on the web?

I'll remember to leave more time for the buildd between uploads next
time. Thanks for the explanation.

swt-gtk 3.0+3.1M4-4 will provide libswt-gtk-3.1-jni but it doesn't
provide libswt-gtk3-jni, which is the package this bug is requesting
Dear release managers,
If libswt-gtk3-jni were built for powerpc, could it be uploaded to a
stable point release? There's a bit of a gap in stable, since the
package exists for most other architectures: amd64 arm hppa i386 ia64
m68k s390 sparc.
I don't believe any package depends on it though (which makes me
wonder a bit why this bug requested the package in the first place),
so if this is a *bad idea* I'll tag the bug wontfix and close it.
