The script to generate chroots is provided by DSA, and DSA don't really
leave a way for buildd admins to fix it. So at least in case of a broken
mirror or network issues, which appears to be most of the failures, I
think it should be DSA responsibility to fix that. With my DSA hat, I
personally have failed to do that.
