Well, while you were aware of the problem, some maintainers don't
necessarly notice them, so I think that it's better to contact the
maintainer first, and let him contact ARCH at buildd.d.o if it's needed.

In general, I prefer not to investigate problems automatically too much,
because it is error-prone, and might hide problems that the maintainers
doesn't know about.

Take care,
