reproducible-builds at would probably have had a faster
response time indeed…

I was about to ask you for a list of packages on certain specified
archs (which is usually better) but then realized that we already
re-schedule all packages in state ftbfs, with no bugs usertagged
reproducible-builds after 3 days automatically and that those 3 days
have already past since your mail.

but then, for unrelated reasons and just since a few hours and for
hopefully less time than that, the automatic scheduler is currently
broken, so I took the liberty to reschedule all ftbfs packages on all
archs/suites instead :) 

(also because I noticed ftbfs bumps for sid on i386+armhf…)
