It certainly doesn't hurt to mention the failed build logs and the
specific Wiki page periodically. In particular, because current procedure
and usage of the Wiki is everything else but clearly documented. And when
I submit changes on the FC4Status page, only a handful of people are
mailed according to the Wiki status output.

At some point in time, the concept of arch-specific co-maintainers of
packages needs to kick in as else our i386 package developers could not
keep up with the requirement of maintaining their packages for multiple
architectures. x86_64 interested community members are encouraged to
contribute, since this is another area where help is needed.
