Are you so overworked, or are you deliberately "forgetting"? It has
been suggested multiple times in the past to use existing or new
hardware and add it to the set of standard autobuilders. Many arches do
not meet the redundancy requirement, and we don't have autobuilders for
i386 at all AFAIK. Moreover, the current buildd admin's apparently
don't have adequate time to communicate, which could be ameliorated by
adding people. Even if nobody had asked so far, we should ask people
who seem capable of doing it.
