ACK. Additionally, I got the feeling at times that the buildd admins do
not take enough of responsibility with the packages they build: If
something goes wrong, either because builds fail, or because packages
don't work on some architectures, or (a combination) builds fail because
always the same package on that arch doesn't behave well on their
buildd, I think the buildd admins should feel responsible. And help
debugging at least when asked. My experience with that is very bad.
