Re: Bug#592725: release.debian.org: Non-free Packages hit by non-functional non-free autobuilders

I have recently heard (rumors - not done deeper research) that currently
non-free packages are not autobuilded. This seems to explain why the
package phylip is not builded for powerpc and armel. It would be
somehow nice if we could get the latest version of this package into
squeeze. Do you any chance to get a freeze exception for this? If yes
I would somehow try to care for packages on these architectures.
Most of the non-free Debian Science / Med packages suffer from this in
some way. I've made some efforts to get non-free reactivated and at
least for powerpc it should be fixed now. We will try to add more
builders on other architectures to the set of non-free building
machines, if no unexpected events happen again (like there were the last
time we tried).
