As Cyril Brulebois was the only one to even answer, I inferred that the other
persons behind sparc@b.d.o and all the subscribers on debian-sparc
don't seem to be interested. My bad. After having more information I
have now reworded the text to:
Due to the lack of buildd suitable buildd machine there are currently no daily
builds for the SPARC architecture. These builds will be reenabled as soon as
as a suitable machine is available.

It was never my intention to offend anyone or to spread "FUD". Sorry
if you got this impression.

I was not aware that the right contact point for this kind of question
would be debian-wb-team@l.d.o. I thought that the correct contact
point would be the sparc buildd admins because the setup needs access
to the buildd and I expected that the persons having this kind of
access to be the buildd admins. I thought that the wb-team is involved
with managing the wb database which is not used for the d-i daily

Sorry that I missed this along the way. This is the first time I hear
of the space issue.

IMHO IRC is not a good medium to communicate important information to a
team. It's to easy to forget something and the information never
reaches all the involved persons. As I'm very rarely on IRC I missed
this communication.

Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter.
Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
