Recovering buildd passwords

If you know some system administrators nearby who seem to be permanently swamp with lots and lots of work, it may be a good idea to make a gift to them. Christmas is near and this might be a good present for your beloved system administrator:

Oh, as a site note: the m68k buildds are still waiting for the password recovery...

I don't wish to nag, but since you bring it up, I sent mail to the m68k buildd admin address about a *spurious* dep-wait for my package (monotone - there was a version that build-depended on the thing it's dep-waiting for, but current versions don't) over two weeks ago with no action taken yet. (Having said this, there will likely be a new upload of the package in the next day or two, so maybe don't do anything right now.)

It's quite unusual that nobody is answering mails to a buildd request on debian-68k. Are you sure you sent it to the right list, which is nowadays debian-68k@lists.d.o and not build-m68k@nocrew.org anymore? I can't find
your mail in the list archive...
Or have you sent it to m68k@buildd.d.o? Maybe then there is a misconfiguration?

I sent it to m68k@buildd.d.o -- having been told several times that debian-$arch@l.d.o was not the right place to reach buildd admins, even though IMO it really ought to be ($arch@buildd.d.o is documented only in obscure places by comparison)...
