The use case I imagine at this point is that a maintainer uploads a
library package src+bin (e.g. src+amd64) for his private arch, and after
weeks he notices, that it still has not been built on e.g. sparc yet. So
he decides to start his spare Ultra 1 workstation, builds the package in
his custom environment and uploads it. My question to this use case:

What happens with the "lost" buildlogs? Is there any possibility for a
maintainer who depends on this library to check the build logs for this
package on this particular architecture? Is the maintainer somehow
encouraged or force by policy to publish his buildlogs?

What happens if a maintainer starts to maintain a rogue buildd which
does not publish his buildlogs? What if this buildd is misconfigured and
uploads hundreds of 'broken' packages?

In short, how does this proposal address the issue James listed in

I think this proposal needs further discussion.
