Some maintainers are probably not fixing issues like this themselves,
they are just forwarding the email or BTS link to upstream.  If the
upstream developer has to set up a chroot then that might slow their
response but if we had a way to show them the total size of the problem
(is it just 1 error or are there 500 errors) then they might respond
more quickly (if it is really just one error) or we might have a better
way of understanding that the move to GCC 6 needs to slow down (if many
packages have hundreds of errors).
